Loading sale description...
Just cause they're are so many I will be naming all of the decoys in an attempt to try and be organized with them. So may I introduce to you, the act you've known for all these years - Sgt Peppers Lonley Hearts Club Band.....
Might as well keep the Beatles theme going and call this guy Ringo. Partly cause he's got a ring around his neck and partly cause he's a damn good drummer. You should hear him nail "In The Air Tonight"
This guys Arthur. Not only does he just look like an Arthur but it's another great Beatles reference (if you can tell me the the reference I'll give you an extra 10% Arthur and Arthur alone)
This is Grandpa Joe. I don't know how old he is but he feels really old. Also he looks like he'd want to tell you inappropriate war stories about his time in the bush (like literally he probably spent a lot of time in bushes. He is a duck decoy)
These are the twins, Fred and George. They're both in pretty good shape. Based on my googling they appear to be Coots, which is apparently an actual type of duck and not just old man insult.
This guy is one of my favorites, I don't know why. I love the faded paint, and the shape and just how worn he is. We're gonna call him Woody.
This is Chunk. He's got a bit of a head injury but it doesn't stop him from doing his job. Which I supposed is just to float there. Also another google search leads me to believe that this a ring-neck duck because of the white ring at the base of the beak so why isn't it called a ring-beak duck?
This is Little Lord Fauntleroy, he defiantly is more of the sit on the shelf and be admired kind of duck than the get in the mud with the peasants kind of duck.
Greg knows he's practically naked but he doesn't care. He's a strong independent duck who doesn't need to follow your prudish ideal of modesty.
This one I just call "Big Guy". He lost his tail in a hunting accident a few years ago but he doesn't let that slow him down. (Also don't ask him about it, he doesn't like to talk about it)
This is One Eyed Willie. The famous pirate duck of Astoria. If you find his treasure you can save the town!
Peter's a hard working Mallard whose not ready to be put up on a shelf. Sure there's a chunk out of his head, and yea he's only got half a beak but he's just as capable as any of his friends here.
Ok, so this is the illusive Hammer Head Duck, a rare species that you don't normally see this far south. Just kidding, this is Harry, He has whatever the duck version of Alopecia. He decided that's not gonna stop him from living his best life though. He's such an inspiration.
Ok, so this guy's got some jaw damage. And a hole in his side, but his paint job is in really good shape. We're gonna call him Harvey.
These guys are in the worst shape of the lot. In the back we've got Daffy - lost his beak in a hunting argument with a very short man with a lisp. In the middle is Bob and in the front is Ichabod.
I'm not gonna name all these little guys but I will tell you that they're all hand carved by J.R. Flynn who is from Slidell, so hometown boys.
The homeowner was in Oil and we've found some really cool Petroliana (which is actually a real word even though I'm kinda skeptical), these are really cool. We've got a set from Cameron and a set from Lafayette.
Yes that is the Mobil Oil Pegasus on the pendulum, and yes he did receive this grandfather clock as a retirement gift. Kind of makes the usual gold watch look a bit cheesy huh? Also you don't have to be a Petroleum collector to enjoy this clock - It really is a great clock with fabulous chimes and you can just pretend the pegasus is a mystical creature that swings back and forth and powers the clock.
For all those times you just need to know the price of gas while sitting in your living room (disclaimer - the sign doesn't miraculously display the current price of gas - you have to actually write it on there)
Why is one of the pins facing a different direction? Is he the leader? Is he better than the others? Who knows. Also that is a 24k gold Mobil Pegasus Tie Pin. Which I almost threw away cause I thought it was a crappy piece of jewelry - so you know, don't just things by their appearance.
Can I ask you just how much beans were people eating in Boston back in the day? To the point where they made a pot just to cook them specifically? Like a lot of pots to cook all the beans? Apparently the shape allows for minimal evaporation while also allowing a slow cooking time. For the all the beans. That people were eating.
It looks like that pitcher is black and white but it's actually Cobalt Blue and white. Made in Poland, which apparently makes it more special than ones not made in Poland. That moonshine jug was made in the USA.
Ok, so I know those are ginger beer jars, but were the called that because they held ginger beer or because they are ginger colored and held beer? I mean I could probably google that but where's the fun in that.
These are vintage leaf shape Ikebana pottery vases. Ikebana is the art of Japanese flower arrangement. There's nothing funny about that, just a bit of knowledge for you.
We have 2 of these. There's only one in the picture because we didn't actually find the other one until after I'd taken the picture.
This blackware pottery vase is signed E. Bigmeat. This is apparently called the Friendship pattern. Likely never to be confused with the Pyrex Friendship pattern of red and orange birds and flowers.
I love this little guy. I have no idea why there is a tiny man in the Raven's stomach but I like to think that they tiny man is cold and the Raven is keeping him warm. Most likely the Raven ate the tiny man but you know it depends on wether you're glass half full or half empty I suppose
This little guy is also another favorite. He kinda looks like the owl version of Eeyore. I can just imagine him saying things like "Oh Bother" can't you?
This piece is unsigned but the design, colors and style appear to be Santo Domingo pueblo pottery, but I can't be sure. There is just something about it that I like though.
There are a few smaller piece that might now be in the picture, honestly there's a lot of very different styles of Pottery in this sale. I'm terrified I'm going to break something every time I turn around.
These are Choctaw Elbow baskets. I'm sure it's because they are shaped like an elbow, but they'd also fit well on your elbow.
This adorable little guy is a Cherokee Fruit Basket, it's got the original tag with the maker's name on it.
This is a Yahi basket from Mill and Deer Creeks in California circa 1872. This is in great shape for being over 100 years old.
Sweet grass coil basket from the Southwest. Great red and green colors. Very functional as a basket as well.
I love the purples in this lidded sweet grass basket. Plus a lid is always good so people can't see what you hide in there.
A tisket a tasket a tan and yellow splint ash and sweetgrass basket. UPDATE someone had the bright idea to open the basket and found an authentication papers it is in fact a Clara Keezer
This is the most useful basket of the lot. Gullah and Pine needle coil basket with a latching lid and handle. You can do everything with this. Put stuff in it. Hide the stuff you put in it with a lid and also carry the stuff somewhere else cause it's got a handle.
