This is one of the nicest Herbie Miller birds, and earliest, I have ever seen . It is all oil and signed and dated from 1958.   I have owned this for a long time and it's time to move along. It could be a decoy or decorative.   I think it would look great on a shelf.        $975.00



This decoy was created by Bob Seabrook. It was modeled after a Jake Barrett and is in excellent antique condition.

This exact decoy was pictured in Loy Harrell's book, Decoys: North America's 100 Greatest Decoys.

This is a solid Brant decoy probably Long Island . It is very old made by an unknown maker in original paint with some checks in  the body, nothing serious but the whole bird is very appealing and folky. New to the market   $750        







The nicest George Strunk decoy I have ever seen. This is hollow, oversized, open-mouthed, rigged, signed, with glass eyes and wonderful feather paint and crossed wings.   George is the premier carver in NJ with many accolades and awards. There is none better.   






         George Strunk made this oversized Bufflehead decoy with a raised wing and unbelievable paint. The feathering and blending is superb. This "decoy" is one of the nicest I have ever seen him make and I was very lucky to get it. Buffleheads decoy to their kind much more readily than other decoys which is why this bird is so good. This is really a one of a kind bird and yet it still has his signature  on the bottom. A truly magnificent piece..

An unknown Delaware River? carving with an old repaint  which is nice, especially for a mantelpiece.  The paint looks thick and neat for an old timer definitely and shows usage.






A great dupicate of an Ira Hudson Blackduck by Reggie Birch of Chincoteague Va. It was made to look exatley like Hudsons bird including the splashed on shellac. The bird is in the balanced feeding position with lead feet very rare and well done. Totally never used to hunt with but it sure doesn't look like it.

A great old Barnegat Bay bird. This has all the traits of an old bird from a light patina to shot marks. The maker is unknown but some of this guys carvings have sold for big money. I think this is a lower Barnegat Bay bird but it sure wasn't used hard.








This, unknown to me, Delaware River drake Bufflehead made to the smaller size.

Great old paint with no fancy blendings but surely shows its age. Look at the peculiar weights and brand.

Here is a Parkertown Brant in very old repaint in structurally great condition. I originally thought Lloyd Parker but I am not sure totally, usually his weights were not inletted but there always exceptions and the weight could have been put in by the hunter. We have researched the C Cran brand but haven't been able to find the owner. The form and patina are great, terrific Jersey brant and wonderful brand. This has been in my collection for years here is your chance to own it.
