HERON LAKE DRAKE MALLARD DUCK DECOY JOE MARR

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: DRAKE MALLARD HERON LAKE. Joe Marr (attributed). This is one of only a couple Drake Mallards (By Joe Marr) known to exist in this folky style and condition (fine for these decoys and how they were used). This exact decoy is pictured in the book Minnesota Duck Decoys, yesterdayês and todays folk artists by Doug Lodermeier. It is pictured on page 338 in the section under Joe Marr. Quoting the author Doug Lordermeier page 334, Without fear of contradiction, I can confidently say that the Marr decoys are some of the finest examples of Heron Lake decoys we see today. They have all of the characteristics that collectors look for in an example of a Heron Lake decoy; the so called horse-head style head and flowing-arched neck, the shallow body construction, and deep heavily-weighted keels that have become consistent with the classic Heron Lake style of decoy. Combined with the paint, patina and usual crazing seen on these decoys, they are truly some of the finest examples seen today. This Mallard drake has that paint with the usual crazing. The body of the decoy has brown or burnt umber breast (no under paint), grey body, blue & white speculums with black tail patch on top of decoy. Many if not most Heron Lake decoys have been repainted and often repainted several times. This Drake Mallard appears to be original. However it does sport an orange eye and has a primer base of brown/burnt umber under the green head. Did the head start out as a drake canvasback or is that just primer under the green head? We will likely never know and it could be debated either way! The green head paint is period to the decoy. It also sports its original body paint, keel and white under belly. Many Heron Lake decoys do not have any keel let alone the original keel, which is a big plus to collectors. It also has original or period rope and anchor. The head carving is classically attributed to Joe Marr and of the best quality. Body of decoy has no under-paint or primer and has never been repainted. Another characteristic sometimes seen on Heron Lake decoys was the removable head. There was a square probably tin plate, counter sunk flush with the body of decoy where the head would attach. There likely is another under the neck along with attached threaded screw, to screw in the head to the body. The head on this decoy at one time did screw in/out, but you can no longer safely remove this head without fear of cross-threading it. When considering age, paint, carving style, aesthetics and art, overall this is one of two and probably the finest Mallard known in existence. Under the decoy on page 338 of the book, the title reads Joseph Marr (attributed) Mallard Drake wonderful condition. Inset: head study of same decoy. It should be noted that every decoy listed in –The Minnesota Decoy Book by Lordermeier under the Joe Marr section, does have attributed (to Joe Marr) in the heading. There are no decoys absolutely positively known to have been made by Marr, however the collecting community widely accepts this style to be that of Joe Marr. This decoy has had hunting and gunning use, yet retains its WOW factor. Regardless of maker these style decoys are among the finest from Minnesota.

DRAKE CANVASBACK HERON LAKE DUCK DECOY JOE MARR

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: This exact decoy is pictured in the Minnesota Decoy Book on page 337. It states in the book –excellent original paint. Circa 1890-1910.

This decoy is all original in every way, including the original worn leather line attachment (under breast). It is believed by this cataloger to arguably be the finest Heron Lake Canvasback extant. Go find another one as good or better, that is for sale! This decoy does show signs of use and gunning wear. That makes it all the more desirable as folk artÄ it was used yet retains a high degree of condition. 12”" L, 7 1/4" W, 6 1/2" T. See the aforementioned two lots for more detailed info for the –Heron Lake style decoys”. The last three cataloged Heron Lake Decoys have wonderful provenance (being printed in the Minnesota Decoy Book, by Lordermeier)! They are among the finest example of Drakes of their respective species known to exist. It would be difficult if not impossible to find better examples of each of these three drakes for sale in one place, let alone individually, at any price. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to buy three of the very best.

ROBIN HOOD SHELL CRATE CIRCA 1912 BLACK GUN POWDER SHELLS PAINTED RED/GREEN RARE

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Very few of these exist! This is the exact shell crate pictured in Boggess book on Sporting collectibles on page 227. Mr. Boggess either left out or didnêt have access to the Robin Hood powder Co history. However due to the way this crate is stamped, and in relation to when the business changed name, it likely was from circa 1912, possibly before. This research was based on Internet information here so buyer beware and do your own research. Buyer has the ultimate decision as to age. Either way painted red and green (similar to their individual shotgun shell box color) shell crates are extremely rare. This is one of the earliest Robin Hood crates extant. It is 12 gauge, no 3 shot, 1 1/8 oz., 3 _ drs.

Description: This is one of the rarest knife sheaths extant. It is likely circa 1840 with orange and remnants of black quills. If you look close you can see pieces and parts of the black quills. This sheath would have been worn around the Native Americans neck, note long hide string. This is a super sheath and difficult at best to find an examples. This would be referred to as a tab sheath (note that the flaps resemble tabs or ears on the top of the sheath). It is soft supple and minus the missing black quills in very good shape. It would appear that bugs ate the black quills long ago (they must have liked something in the dye(s) that were used to color the quills black!. This sheath, even with the damage is of Museum quality doe to its rareness. Don't let this one pass you by. You will rarely see another for sale at public auction. The original trade knife is still with the sheath. It has a carved or engraved bone handle and W Greaves stamped onto the blade. William Greaves of Sheffield was in business from 1780-1816. His sons joined him circa 1816 and all were in business together though 1850. Two great early pieces. As good as it gets for early Native American Indian material.

PAINTED PIPE TAMPER AND BEADED CASE NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: This pipe tamper is superb, note that the handle area is painted red and blue within the natural wood geometric fields. Abstractly these appear to represent the red and blue flames in a fire. It is a fantastic nuance only Native Americans could have accomplished. The beaded (likely Northern Plains) case resembles an awl case but the tamper fits perfectly. Items were found together, ensemble. Which begs the question was it originally a tamper case made for the tamper or was it an awl case that was scavenged for a tamper? Regardless it is very eye appealing and they fit well and came together. Case is 12 1/4" L and Tamper is 8"” L. Two great items for the price of one!

NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN BEADED VEST WITH ELK, MOOSE, EAGLE ++ CA 1925

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: This circa 1925 vest is one of the most elaborate this cataloger has seen. It would be difficult at best to place this in a tribal category, lets just suffice to say that it surely was Native American made. It has more than one bird flying, Bird tracks outlining the vest. It also sports a Moose in a night scene and elk running. Note he has his antlers leaning back on his back! This vest is string sewn. The rough parts you think you see in the photo (that could be pig skin) are in fact the knots that were tied after beading the front side. These knots hold the beadwork into place. This vest has about all the zoomorphics you could ask for. Including fringe it is about 21" Tall, 17.5" W. A fantastic piece,
