 Rare Willet Shorebird
North Shore, Massachusetts, circa 1890









Presented here, a large, imposing Willet Shorebird Decoy with aluminum bill in nearly mint original condition. Rare species for a Shorebird Decoy . . . Branded E. P Smith.

When evaluating a decoy, we look at it as Folk Sculpture, taking into account the form and surface as well as the proportion as presented by the carver. This one excels on all counts. Rig mate pictured in Luckey's Collecting American Bird Decoys  III, p. 48. Condition is high outstanding!  Length is 13 inches.
