My wife got me these first three decoys at an estate auction today, the last one was a gift from a friend. I am new to collecting does anyone know anything about any of them? :help: Any help would be great
The second one has the name carol and the date 197? (I can't read the last number) written in pencil on the bottom. SA 2191 in pen also on the bottom. It also has the number 36 typed on a small piece of paper and then glued or varnished to the bottom. It's also a hollow body if that helps. The rest are all solid wood bodies. The first one has a removable head and I'm pretty sure was repainted at some point. The red on the neck does not look like something a hunter would do. Thanks again for the help
The second decoy from the picture you have looks to be a a Joe Tom Cramer from Manahawkin New Jersey From around 1920 With out a better look at the decoy I cant say for sure. Value is maybe $125.00 The last looks like a factory copy of a A.E. Crowell they show up on ebay all the time, not worth much. Thats all I have for you, but keep hunting, there are some good decoys out there to find.
+1 on sending pics to Guyette and Schmidt. They know decoys like Tiger Woods knows pornstars...
I sent the following pics of a decoy I recently aquired to numerous decoy auctioneers and they were the only one's to provide info. NOt real thrilled though because I found out it is a Scoter, not a Buffy like I had hoped. So if anyone is interested let me know...haha
