Wonderfully formed, classic decoy from either the American or Canadian side of the Thousand Islands Region of Lake Ontario and the St.
The Thousand Islands region is generally referred to as the 60 mile length of waterway that begins where Lake Ontario funnels into the St. This Michigan decoy was initially carved and painted in the form of a resting Greater Scaup Drake; however it appears to have had a white cheek patch added at a later repaint to represent a Goldeneye drake. Up for bid today is a drake Goldeneye duck decoy. Stony Brook was home to one of Long Island's well-known carvers, Eugene"Gene" Wells.
Larry VINTAGE GOLDENEYE HEN DUCK DECOY D-183 ONTARIO Hand carved from white cedar. Picked up in the Kawartha Lakes area.
Wings, tail feathers and fully textured body and head. There are deep cracks on either side. The body is exactly the same as his later "factory" birds, but the "beetle" head is something special.
The paint is wet blended and has a very nice dry surface.
Lawrence, and for the past few years, he has been quite successful in the Brockville "Riverfest" Fishing Derby.
This whistler decoy features two line tie eye-rings and an old lead pad weight.
