Aubrey Kent

Bluebill Hen

Hollow carved bluebill hen by Col. Aubrey Kent. See page 29 of Wildfowl Decoys of the Pacific Coast as well as the great article on the maker in the Nov/Dec 2011 issue of Decoy Magazine. A rare Pacific Northwest decoy. Excellent all original scratch paint with an old neck crack repair. 

Price: $750


Lt. Gov. Rig

Mallard Pair

BC collectors refer to these unknown maker mallards as Lt. Governors Rig. There is a similar pair depicted on page 7 of Wildfowl Decoys of the Pacific Coast by Michael Miller. This pair is hollow carved measuring just over 18" in length. The drake is original and worn. The hen appears to be in old working repaint.

Price: $200


Ernie Johnson

Brant

Excellent and all original Pacific black brant by Ernie Johnson of Vancouver Island, BC, ca. 1940. Excellent hollow carved engineering on these decoys. Both the heads and necks are removable. There is a piece of sheet metal on the tails to prevent splitting. Johnson only made 52 decoys in total. See page 29 of Wildfowl Decoys of the Pacific Coast by Miller and Hanson.

Price: $300


Unknown Maker

Brant

Stylish hollow carved with bottom board Pacific black brant by a maker unknown to me. Paint appears to be mostly original. There could be an old second coat applied likely by the maker. Robust carving measuring 19.5" in length.

Price: $280
