Vintage Joseph Singleton Tumbler Ice Fish Fishing Spearing Decoy Circa 1920 :
This is one of the most interesting decoys I've seen in recent years, this decoy is actually a tumbler, with a line tie than actually goes into a lead cavity on the top of the fish so it will roll and flopping in the water when jigged. This decoy was carved by Joseph Singleton, The Crisp PointLighthousekeeper and father of Carver Tom Singleton of Newberry Mi. I purchased this decoy from a friend of the Singleton family that was given the decoy by Tom in the early 60's to use on the Tahquamenon river spearing. Circa 1920, Measures 6" long and exhibits Josephs standard harlequin scheme, with no eyes. Front fins have been removed as I think they probably would have tangled the line as it rolled. Don't let thisamazingpiece ofMichigan decoy historyslipaway, you will not be disappointed. THE PICTURES DONT LIE THIS IS A GREAT PIECE!!! offer early and offer often, as people tend to forget about until after the sale ends. If you have any questions feel free to ask. PLEASE NOTE I CHARGE SALES TAX ON ANY PURCHASES THAT HAPPEN IN THE STATE OF MICHIGAN. Thanks A.J
