Vintage Fish Lure Decoy Hand Made Folk Art Signed J Schmidt Artist Marine Life For Sale
I DO NOT KNOW MUCH REGARDING THESE HAND MADE FISH LURES BUT I WILL DO MY BEST TO DESCRIBE WHAT I HAVE HERE WHICH I HAVE JUST OBTAINED RECENTLY AT AN ESTATE sale. HERE IS A MOST FANTASTIC FISH DECOY FEATURING THE MOST UNBELIEVABLE REALISTIC DETAIL THIS IS TRULY AN EXTREMELY TALENTED ARTIST . THE PIECE IS SIGNED- J.SCHMIDT ON THE UNDERSIDE AND IS IN FACT A GENUINE LURE DECOY THAT I AM SURE CAN ACTUALLY BE USED. I AM UNSURE WHAT KIND OF FISH THIS IS. HE MEASURES 5.25 INCHES LONG AND 3 HIGH. THE PIECE IS A GENUINE WORK OF ART . I AM USURE OF THE COMPOSITION OF THE BODY BUT IT IS ABSOLUTELY HAND PAINTED. THE EYES MAY BE GLASS AS THEY ARE A BIT COLD TO THE TOUCH. THERE IS A ROUND HOOK APPLIED TO THE TOP I AM ASSUMING SO HE CAN BE FASTENED TO A LINE. HE IS IN BEAUTIFUL CONDITION OTHER THAN A TINY SPLIT ON THE PAINT AS SHOWN IN THE VERY SMALL FIN [ ABSOLUTELY NOT A CRACK] AS I HAVE INSPECTED IT WITH A VERY FINE JEWELERS MAGNIFIER THE PIECE IS SUPER CLEAN AND WAS NEVER ACTUALLY USED AND MAY HAVE BEEN PART OF SOMEONES FINE COLLECTION I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE ANY INFORMATION REGARDING THE ARTIST WHICH I WILL ADD TO THE DESCRIPTION. THANKS! On Mar-07-13 at 11:15:19 PST, seller added the following information:
I WANT TO JUST ADD THAT IF YOU ARE offerDING ON THIS PIECE PLEASE JUDGE IT SIMPLY FOR THE ART WORK PROSPECTIVE BEING AS I HAVE STATED IN THE DESCRIPTION THAT I DO NOT KNOW MUCH REGARDING FISH LURE DECOYS SO WHETHER OR NOT IT CAN ACTUALLY BE USED I REALLY DO NOT KNOW 100 PERCENT THOUGH I DID STATE THAT IT PROBABLY CAN. I AM A COLLECTOR OF ANTIQUES AND ART ITEMS SO I CAN SAY THE QUALITY OF THE PIECE IS SUPER OUTSTANDING AND WAS MADE NO DOUBT BY A VERY TALENTED ARTIST. THE PIECE IS SIGNED- J. SCHMIDT ON THE UNDERNEATH OF THE PIECE AS SHOWN I HAVE TRIED TO DO WHAT RESEARCH I CAN ON THE ARTIST NAME AND WAS ABLE TO FIND THAT THE NAME SCHMIDT IS WELL KNOWNAMONGFAMOUS DECOYSCULPTORSBUT I DID NOT FIND ONE WITH THE FIRST NAME INITIAL OF - J AS THIS ONE IS SIGNED J SCHMIDT SOPERHAPSIT IS ONE OF THE FAMILY MEMBERS OF THE SCHMIDT SCULPTORS. THE ARTIST MAY BE WELL KNOWN FOR ALL I KNOW BUT THIS IS ALL I WAS ABLE TO FIND. ALSO, THE LOWER BASE FINS CAN BE BEND VERYSLIGHTLYSO MY GUESS IS THAT THE COMPOSITION MAY BE SOMETHINGMALLEABLE PERHAPS ANALUMINIUM ALLOY OR SOMETHING TO THAT NATURE. I WAS TOLD TO BE A GENUINE USABLE LURE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN OF A HEAVY BASE WHICH THIS IS NOT STILL, NOT ALL OF THE BODY OF THE PIECE IS MALLEABLE SUCH AS THE UPPER FINS AND TAIL [ JUST THE TWO ;LOWER SMALL FINS]SO SOME OF THE PIECE MIGHT HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THE BODY. THANKS SO MUCH :)
