Isdell Black Duck
Isdell Black Duck

 

 

Very early & scarce Black Duck decoy attrib to Capt. George Isdell. He lived in town of Oyster, VA and was a guide on Cobb Island, VA. Circa 1875-1900. Paint is a very early mix of original & working repaint with nice scratch painting on the head. Very cool carved eyes and a solid carved body measures approx 17 inches long & has nice raised wing tip carving as in the best style Cobb Island decoys of that era. Has a nice deeply inletted head, again another trait of the best style influence of the great decoys by Nathan Cobb. Body is solid & made from a lopsided piece of wood but must have worked just fine as it looks like a lot of ducks were killed over this heavy gunned bird. Has some old but secure age lines in body, also has a couple of neck cracks & separation but is secure and displays nicely. Retains two original lead pad weights and the original leather line tie. Very cool decoy here that has great age and history and from Cobb Island that make this a true Eastern Shore of Virginia classic. Capt George Isdell owned the rail service in Oyster for the pulling of boats. He was a guide for 2 generations of the Cobb family. He also also the personal guide and Captain of the famous author Thomas Dixon and his gunning and pleasure yacht "The Dixie". Some great info on Capt Isdell and the Cobb family and the hunting on the island can be found in Henry Fleckenstein's excellent book "SOUTHERN DECOYS of Virginia and the Carolinas", and several other important decoy history books too. The decoys made on Cobb Island are some of the finest style decoys ever made on Virginia's Eastern Shore and are very rare and a strong and important addition to any collection of great classic Southern decoys. They are a rare offering and this example is sure to please any collector of Eastern Shore Black Ducks. More pics avail of this southern rarity.

Corb Reed Shoveler
Corb Reed Shoveler
Corb stamp


 

 

Outstanding & very scarce Shoveler decoy by J. Corb Reed (1897-1982), Chincoteague Island, VA. Stamped "J. C. REED". Circa 1960-70. Excellent all original paint & condition. Great detail and the colors and blending on the feathers are the most accurate I have seen on any Shoveler decoy, Corb knows how to paint a Shoveler. Corb was a outstanding painter, he could paint vermiculation like no other carver, they say he had a small piece of something he wore on his finger that he used to achive his realistic vermiculation, he would never tell anyone what it was & they say he swallowed it before he died taking his painting secret to the grave. His paint is unmatched by very few. Nice slightly raised wings with great head, tail and feather carving. Bird is carved with a very slightly turned head & glass eyes. Measures approx 16 3/4 inches long. Corb Reed started carving around 1912, he was well known for his decoys and flatwork art of marsh & wildfowl. He painted many wall murals in the government buildings in Washington D.C. The decoys by Corb Reed are the most underated & undervalued decoys to come off of Chincoteague Island.

Paint has been aged proper with an incredible soft & dry patina. Has a perfectly aged screw eye line tie & aged lead pad weight.

Charlie Bryan Bluebill pair
 

 

Nice classic pair of Bluebill decoys by the late Charlie Bryan, Middle River, MD. Signed and dated 1990. Pair has never been gunned over and only show a bit of edge wear from handling. Paint is very strong & all original, thick & clean and classic Charlie with sponge painted backs that only he did with a very effective result. Never been waxed and very nice dry surface. Retains original weights & line ties. Nice fat solid carved bodies measure approx 15 inches long each. Charlie was a great guy, made a great decoy and was very respected by anyone who ever met this fine man. He started making decoys in the 50's and they were well thought out and different in many ways then what most others were doing. He use to make a few each year to pay for his hunting but the demand went crazy & he tried but could never keep up with the demand & really hated charging more then the $60 he got for them for many years. I know a lot of hunters & collectors and more of these folks considered this man a true friend then anyone else I have ever met. He is very much missed by many. Charlie's birds are highly sought by anyone who knew him and I rarely get any for resale. More pics avail. Nice pair here and a good buy for the nice work put into it by a well known old time carver.

Bailey Moltz hen Canvasback
Bailey Moltz hen Canvasback
 

 

Rare hen Canvasback by Bailey Moltz, Havre de Grace, MD. Circa 1940's. This is probably the finest known original paint example known. Very good plus all original paint and condition. Nice surface that is very dry, clean and strong, never waxed. Looks as if hunted little as condition is very nice and strong . Measures approx 16 1/2 inches long, with nice full and wide body carving. Weight and line tie have been removed and has a thin but secure crack in neck and does not distract in any way. Bailey Moltz was known as somewhat of a character in the HdG area. He occasionally worked in Madison Mitchell's shop and was best known as a head carver. Hence the strong resemblance to Mitchell's heads. His decoys have a rough unfinished look under the paint because he never sanded the spoke shave and knife marks. His decoys are seldom found and it is unheard of to find an example in such nice all original condition, especially a hen. This is a fantastic and rare example for any collector looking to add a choice example Upper Bay or classic Canvasback to a collection. E-mail for more pics if interested.

Very nice and early half size flying Mallard drake by Ira Hudson (1876-1949) and Delbert Hudson (1927-1979), Chincoteague Island, VA. Circa 1940's. Excellent all original paint with very little areas of shrinkage of paint over grain areas on back of carving. No repairs or touch ups of any kind. Measures approx 11 3/4 inches long. Has Hudson's original over coat of varnish that he put on most of his decorative and flying pieces. This is classic & desirable Hudson style of decorative flyer. Nicely done paint style with great small detail feathering. This bird is ex-collection of Bill Purnell who felt the carving was probably done by Delbert but the painting was all Ira. I met a collector years ago who remembered back when he was a child that Hudson and different members of the Hudson family would go door to door selling miniature style carvings and flyers before Christmas. His family bought several great ones over those early years. This is a great piece here for any collection of minis or collectors of Southern Folk Art carvings. I also have a pair of these avail, if interested pics avail.

Clarence Lewis Robin Snipe rig

 

 

Very nice rig of 5 Robin Snipe flatties attrib to Clarence Lewis (1914-1992), Stacy, NC. Circa 1940-50's. Paint is all original and is very dry and clean with good tiny stroke brushwork style. Decoys are lifesize and measures approx 9 1/2 inches long each and all are mounted thru body on heavy copper wire that measures approx 13 inches long on each. Bodies are flattie style and look as if some type of old boat maker plywood was used in making. Im not sure if these were made as decoration or to gun with, even though shorebird hunting was outlawed many years ago it continued by local folks in most of the coastal towns up and down the east coast that were lucky enough to stay mostly rural. It is thought that Clarence worked the water to help his family in his youth and began carving in the late 1920's. He got full time with it after he retired as a bulding inspector for Carteret County. He had a shop & enjoyed decoys and the decoy community. Some good info can be found on Clarence Lewis in Jack Dudley's excellent book, "Carteret Waterfowl Heritage". These were purchased as a group at a Eastern Shore of VA auction this past year that included several very nice pieces from a NC collection. A very nice buy here for the money, dont find a group like this very often, more pics avail.

Nice Bluebill drake decoy by Eldon Willis (1908-1981), Stacy, NC. Circa late 50's-early 60's. Very good plus all original paint, thats very dry, strong and clean. Measures approx 13 inches & is solid carved with body being two pieces and has a rasped finish on body. Has some honest old wear from gunning but still very strong with good paint patterns & color. This bird has a keel which was probably added from the man who purchased the gunning rig from Willis. He was from Michigan and thought all decoys were suppose to have a keel. Eldon started carving in the 1920s with Telford Gaskill then in 1926 or 27 he teamed up with Elmer Salter to make decoys till Salter's death in 1964. Eldon carved many decoys on his own in this time frame & this is an fine example of Eldon's work. Eldon was "old school" yet lived to see hunting decoys become collectible as folk art. Today he is widely known & regarded highly for his classic decoys.

Nice form with turned head drake and very nice sleeper/preener head on hen. Hollow full bodies that measures approx 11 3/4 inches long on drake and 10 1/2 on hen. Glass eyes in both in perfect shape. Cline starting making decoys in 1945 learning techniques from the master Charles Perdew. He even borrowed some of Perdew's patterns & tools early on and that is why his fine decoys show so much Perdew influence in both the carving and painting. His earliest work is very similar to Perdew's. Cline's probably produced over a thousand decoys over the years, they were highly sought and very popular amongst the contemporary decoy collectors of that era. Cline was a police officer in the city of Chicago and was tragically killed in a car accident while on duty. Good looking and not often found pair of BW Teal for any collection of classic Illinois River decoys. Excellent matched pair here for the money and more nice pics available.

A very hard to find species by Joiner in this vintage with a flat bottom. Full size with glass eyes, measures approx 14 1/4 inches long. Has a slightly turned head & the "classic 64" wide bill carving. Perfect condition except for slight puddy lift on back of head. You will have a tuff time finding another one of these as early flat bottom models by Charlie are scarce & this is the only the 2nd one I have seen, the other was from the Ward Brother's family collection sold last year, also a matching hen sold on ebay last year. Serious Joiner piece here for the collector that thought they had it all.

Early Grayson Brant
Early Grayson Brant
 

 

Early primitive Cobb style Brant decoy by Grayson Chesser, Jenkins Bridge, VA. Circa 1970's. Has Grayson's "C" carved into bottom. Good all original paint & condition with some intentional wear by Grayson to wood in several areas. Hollow carved body measures approx 18 inches long including the splined bill, with raised wing carving, root wood head, and has glass eyes. Has check in bottom and another along top back but may have been made like this to make look very old as this has more intentional wear then other "old style" birds I have seen by Grayson and I do see some paint in both check areas, so some spliting was there when painted. Grayson was the "Carver of the Year" at the 2004 Havre de Grace Decoy Show, and just did an exhibit at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, D.C. Grayson did a nice job on this one and is a early example that is pretty scarce style. This is a very nice decoy for any collector of Grayson looking for something hard to find. More pics avail.

McNair Dove
 

 

Neat Dove decoy by Mark McNair, Eastern Shore of VA. Circa less then 25 years old. Never painted by Mark but the surface is very dry and clean with proper wear for aged look of antique shorebird. McNair classic style Dove with slight raised shoulder/wing carving with split wing & long tail carving. Solid carved body with no eyes, measures approx 13 inches long. Has splined bill. Carved signature on bottom. This is a pretty cool piece, it was made to hang by hook on back. The original owner of it hung it on his outside porch & several times he noticed a carpenter bee flying around it. One day when he went out there & took it down he saw where the bee bored a perfect hole in the bottom right thru McNair's signature. The spot was perfect as you can see above, that is how the bird sits on stand before I remove when posting pics on site. This is a very neat piece by Mark & a popular species with collectors, I doubt he ever made very many unpainted. You saw some record prices for McNair's this past 2 years at auction with a collection that has started to come to market. McNair's continue to be very strong in todays market & they also continue to be very hard to find for sale. Metal stand will be included. Priced to sell. More pics avail.
