Suggestive of Indiana or Louisiana School













































- DESCRIPTION -
Please be patient there are 22 photos to be loaded in this sale.

We have a pair of similar decoys; and this is the seccond of two. This sale is for a vintage, sleek green long billed duck decoy. This one is primitive and unsigned. So let's look at the story it tells. It is made of wood, and you can see a line around it that indicates that it was hollowed out. I think the fill is a lighter, possibly balsa wood fill. There is a line at the neck and the beak, and the eyes are incised and painted black. There is a round area on the back of the head, probably for a peg. The head is painted with black on the back of the head and gray blue on the sides with black spots. The body is painted with lines to indicate wing feathers and back feathers, mostly in gray and black and some highlight color that might have once been white. The whole thing is nice and sleek with a raised tail, lovingly sanded and handled into smoothness.

We couldn't find another decoy with these exact features in our research, but we think this is suggestive of the Louisiana or Indiana school of decoy styles.

The decoy measures approx. 14.5" long from tail to bill, 5" wide and 7" tall. There are cracks at the base of the neck and where the bill joins the head. You can see holes from the anchor loop and maybe a weight along the shallow keeled bottom. Good Luck!

Estimated shipping weight, (packaged) is 2 lbs 8 oz in a 18 x 10 x 10 box. The Calculator is not always right - if the shipping looks too high email us and we will give you an accurate quote prior to the sale ending. ************ What a great find!

Please note: We put up a very ecclectic collection of items and are not experts in every area,
so descriptions are our best guess as to what something is. While we try to research each item to the
best of our ability, it is the buyer's responsibility to know what they are buying.

TERMS OF SERVICE

is ALL we do for a living, husband and wife (Norb & Marie) working together, while we home school our kids on our farmette in Rural Delmarva. We have worked very hard to build our little business and it is very important to us. We try and do business the old fashioned way and have a rather simple outlook.

Treat all of your customers as if they are family.

Be courteous, answer emails, be fair in all your deallings and try and make friends of each and every customer.

BUT... with 's new star rating and the rate increases in the U.S. Postal rates we needed to define and explain our methods of business.

ONE - Who We Deal With

We sell and ship world wide to anywhere, so please email us for a quote to wherever you happen to be.

TWO - Shipping Charges

We charge shipping based on the USPS system, we will sometimes ship via courier if we can get it to you within the same time frame or faster. We add a reasonable cost for materials, normally that is $2.00 for regular sized packages. For small flat items $1.00. That covers the expense of boxes, envelopes, bubble wrap, peanuts, (We only use new packing materials, life is too short to scrounge through dumpsters). For larger items that take a larger more expensive box, we charge a little more, to cover the special box, example paintings or lamps. For oversized items or items that will take special attention to package, (Build a crate, wrap a zillion things individually, etc.), we ask you to email us for a quote on shipping prior to the sale ending. If you do not, we charge the same amount as if you did. In other words WE NEVER GOUGE OUR CLIENTS SHIPPING COSTS!!

THREE - International Shipping

We charge shipping based on the USPS international system. The rates follow the same guidelines as number two above, though for international customers we add an additional $1.00 to cover the extra paperwork involved in international shipping. If an amount goes over $50 in value we will only ship it with Priority or Express Mail, regardless how small an item. That allows for us to have international tracking. There is no tracking available on First Class Mail.

FOUR - Insurance

's policies no longer allows us to charge the client for insurance. But... we still apply insurance to any item that goes over $27.00 in value. We reserve the right to use the insurance carrier of our choice. Sometimes that is Postal or the Carrier's Insurance and sometimes that is a private insurance company such as DSI or U-PIC/Shipsurance. If we use a private insurance company the package will not be marked insured, but it will be.

FIVE - Methods of Payment Accepted

We aoffere by 's rules and try and stay abreast of their changes. We accept Paypal. Paypal also accepts the major credit cards, or we also take Credit Cards Directly over the phone, (MC, VISA, DISCOVER, AMERICAN EXPRESS, CARTE BLANCHE, DINERS CLUB, JCB) Bottom line, whatever method is most convenient for you.

SIX - Time Frame To Pay

We ask all sales to be paid for in the fastest possible time frame. (This is all we do for a living and we need the money to pay the bills and buy more unique and fun items to put up on )

SEVEN - Shipping Time Frame

We make every effort to ship in a timely manner. We are home schooling the boys, listing tons of items, and as like any of us are just plain swamped, so we have to schedule a special time to pack and ship. We ship on a first paid, first shipped basis. (We do not ship any item until it has been paid and the funds have cleared.) With the ebb and flow of payments we manage to get everything out of the door within one week. If there is a rush, we will make every effort to work with you in getting it out of the door faster. As you can see from our response, we do not disappoint. OF COURSE, items that need special attention, crating, etc adds to the time frame of those items.

Finally, EIGHT - Communication

Please feel free to contact us at anytime, with any question or comment. Unless we are out of town we make an effort to answer all emails as quickly as possible.
