    Just found to cool decoys for a great price the 1st is this old one that has been around awhile from the looks of it. It's not marked and is about 6in wide about 9.5 long. Has a cool t like pattern I'm black on the back and his head looks tiny for the body or maybe he is chubby Hahahah. Wondering if anyone may know of the creator or guess at the time period of the guy.

      This is way small for an actual hunting decoy and the design painted on it doesn't seem to match. It may have been part of a line but I would sooner think it was a display model.

      Im gonna get better photos to show maybe that will help

      I'm guessing early 20th century decoy not sure who made it but I like the black T like pattern.

      Just got an expert opinion and looks like it's and Oldsquaw decoy likely from maine early 20th century. Maker still unknown.

      Finally Scored!!!! This wonderful duck will be going up for auction at the end of July by the biggest decoy auction house in the USA... Guyette and Deeter. They believe it to be 1860s and somewhere from Long Island NY.

      very good news whitman75! congratulations! did they say what bird it's made to decoy? it looks familiar, but i can't quite remember what bird it reminds me of... a grebe maybe?

      It's an Old Squaw they presume.
