Very light (8 oz.), hollow-carved wooden gunning decoys by D K ('old Davey') Nichol, Smith's Falls, Ontario, c. 1920. Repainted by his nephew, D W ('young Davey') Nichol in 1950. These exact decoys are pictured and described in the book "Nichol Decoys: The Smiths Falls School of Carving", by Gates, Mewburn & Reeve, the authoritative resource material on decoys of this area.
