W-16 Hand Carved Adirondack Duck Decoy

W-16 We recently found this vintage all wooden duck decoy in the Adirondacks and on the New York side of Lake Champlain were he was probably used and made by a commercial hunter. We think it dates to sometime around WW1. He is entirely hand carved and hand painted with about 50% of its original paint still in tact and still has both of his original glass eyes. He does have some age cracks and some minor war wounds but tons of character and charm. Total length is approximately 15 inches.

Seabird by J. Hand

This vintage hand carved and hand painted confidence decoy featuring glass eyes is by master decoy carver Jamie Hand of Cape May County. A confidence decoy is something other than a duck or goose and of a bird often found in the same locations as the hunted species. It helps to provide "confidence" to the birds being hunted that the area is safe and normal. This decoy was lightly hunted.

It is approximately 21.5 inches long, 6 inches wide and 7.5 inches tall and it comes with a current story about the master carver Jamie Hand.

W-18 Wooden Green Head Decoy

W-18 This smallish vintage Green Head duck decoy has a composite body and hand carved wooden head. It was all hand painted and still has most (about 90%) of his original paint in vivid colors. His original glass eyes remain in place. I bet he fooled many ducks during his working days, years ago and now is ready to retire and is eagerly looking for a place on a bookcase or by a fireplace. Do you know of such a place?
