Antique Style Decoys

A couple of years ago I received a commission for an antique style decoy. To properly carve the decoy, I spent a great deal of time studying the style and techniques of decoy carvers from the 19th and early 20th centuries. I have found the design, the painting style and the warmth of the patina a favorite style for me to carve. (Some of these carvings are for sale, click here to see all the carvings I have for sale.)



The first carving is Plover. It was detail painted and aged to look like it have been sitting in a hunting lodge for years. The second picture is of an American Avocet, the third is a Yellow Legs and the fourth is a Long-Tailed decoy.
