MAITIME CANADA GOOSE HUNTING DECOY

SOLID BODY CANADA GOOSE DECOY CIRCA 1900 IN ORIGINAL CONDITION AS WELL AS PAINT, THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST EXAMPLES OF A MARITIME GOOSE I HAVE EVER SEEN. SPLIT HEAD IS A TYPICAL MARITIME TRAIT. PURCHASED THIRTY YEARS AGO AT AN OLIVER AUCTION, SEVERAL AGE CRACKS ON BOTTOM WITH THE ORIGINAL BALLAST WEIGHT. ONLY TWO KNOWN MARITIME CARVERS UTILIZED THIS UP SWEPT TAIL, SO THIS WAS EITHER DONE BY AMATEUR SAVOIE EARLY IN HIS CAREER BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF STAMPING, AMATEUR WAS FROM NEQUAC NEW BRUNSWICK OR WAS DONE BY HENRY LESLIE OF KENSINGTON PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND. WHAT A GREAT OLD BIRD THAT I WILL PROBABLY REGRET SELLING, ABOUT 22" LONG BY 9" SHIPPING WILL BE BASED ON ACTUAL COST.

PEI Root Head Goose

Unidentified Goose,PEI,Canada. PRICE REDUCED! MBW1
Prince Edward Island Root head Canada Goose in mostly original paint as well as condition. Old second coat of paint to the white areas including on the head. A lot of draw plane marks in the wood. The eyes are natural (knots through the wood)and the bill neck and head are two separate pieces. Originally this decoy appears to have had two iron legs which were sawed off the body so the decoy could be used as a floater. The single leg was put back on later to use once again as it had been originally intended as a field decoy. This is the condition in which the collector found it many years ago. This is a great decoy! One of my favorites.

John Smith Whistler Drake

John Smith,Barrington,Nova Scotia MMM7
Drake Whistler from the late John Smith in original condition with a small repair to the lower part of the back of the neck. Working decoy is presented exactly as found and probably needs to be cleaned up a bit. The body appears to be original paint with some hunter T-U to the white on the wings as well as the eyes which were not likely painted by Smith. Very small age crack on the left side of the body. Nice form, especially to the position of the head. Rigged for hunting and used as such, it still retains the original decoy line, leather strap as well as center ballast weight. This is an early example of Smith's working decoys and he is considered to be the most prolific carver from Nova Scotia who carved over a seventy year period. Smith carved Whistlers,Bluebill,Blackduck and Eider decoys. He also made some decorative carvings. Because of the vast numbers of decoys he carved,it left little time for much detail carving or elaborate styling. His birds always have painted eyes,little or no neck and very simple but adequate bodies. A very important carver from the history of Nova Scotia decoys.

Carver: John Smith

Weight: 15
Price: $135
