Some of these decoys are more than 100 years old and over the course of many hunting seasons it is bound to happen. Pierre Bacon is a very talented carver from Quebec Canada that make decoys and carving of many different species. His works are expertly made, sometimes mimicking other carvers, and Bacon does a great job replicating decoys that are hard to distinguish form the originals, except that he adds his initials to the bottom to ensure there is no confusion.
I say most because as you see some decoys will have a modest/fair-market reserve. Call it down-sizing if you will. If a decoy doesn't meet reserve, let's talk. NOTE: As with most sporting collectibles, along with being a great addition to a game room or home decor, vintage decoys have shown to be a sound investment that seldom decrease in value.
Each decoy is truly a One-Of-A-Kind item as no two hand-carved decoys are exactly alike and with so few available decoys from each carver, as time passes, they will surely only increase in value. Be sure to add my to your favorite sellers/searches. I have many more decoys to add from all regions including the Chesapeake Bay, Ontario, Quebec, Michigan, New York, Illinois, the St. The item "Ed McNeil Landsowne Ont.
