Fish decoysHere are two painted wooden fish decoys. They were cut from 3/4" boards and shaped with a router, then painted in greens, red, white, and black. Each is painted a little differently, and each has a hole through the front for a line to be attached. They range from 12" to 12 1/2" long, and from about 3 1/2" to 4" high. While not extremely old, they do show some oxidation and weathering from age and use. THOC is in very good, used condition. The other (THOT) was broken and reglued at the bottom of the fin and the bottom tip of the tail. They are priced at $75.00 each. Inventory Codes: TOHC and TOHT.   Fish decoys ... The other side ...

Found objects robotThis folk art robot was made from found objects, including cans, spoons, a bucket, bottle caps, a funnel, and other objects. It is painted gold which has oxidized and taken on a rich dark surface over the years. The hands are made from large metal spoons or ladles, and the feet are from sardine cans. The robot has a bolt and heavy metal wire coming out of the head for hanging. It is in very good, typically used condition. While the age is unknown it certainly is not recent, and looks like it was probably made in the 1950's or 60's. It is about 38" high by 17" wide by 10" deep. The price is $425.00.

Adam and Eve carvingThis is a large, exceptional old wood carving depicting Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden together with the Snake and Apple Tree. It is done in great detail in full, deep relief around the entire hard pine log. It has a wonderful old surface and patina. In a very unusual manner, this is actually two full scenes carved on opposite sides. One depicts Eve reaching for the apple with the serpent overhead, while the other shows the Angel ordering them away. Before, Adam and Eve are naked, after they are wearing fig leaves. Inscribed on the base of the "after" side is the word "Banishment". This carving is most likely from the late 1800's and is in excellent condition with very slight bark loss on the base. The piece is about 38" high by 12" by 12". The price is $4500.00. Inventory Code: CCPA.   Adam and Eve carving, "Banishment" ... The other side, in the Garden ... Another angle ... Fourth view ...

BirdhouseThis is a very detailed model house with accurately carved construction details, a heavy wire fence, and yard. It is also a birdhouse. It includes a carved chair and sofa on the porch. All the downstairs windows have what seems to be pictures of windows taken from magazines. These are mounted behind thin clear plastic. The fence likely was cut from a larger piece of wire mesh. The gate swings open and closed. The base (yard) is pine and the rest is a combination of pine and crate wood. The overall condition is very good - especially for the age, likely about the 1940's, and the outdoor use. However there is some slight loss to the top of the chimney and a bit of the back right roof corner was split off years ago. The entire house, yard, and fence has been painted, with no sign of repaint or overpaint. There is some natural aging, crazing, and wear in the paint. The yard is 14 3/4" by 19 1/2"; the house 13 1/2" by 11" and 9 1/2" high to the ridge. The price is $475.00. Inventory Code: AKHO. Folk art birdhouse ... Front view ... One side ...

Inlaid fraternal whimseyThis an extraordinary, one of a kind, folk art piece. It is a very large, extremely detailed marquetry whimsey with a fraternal theme; including many carved and inlaid elements. This has so much intricate work that more things continue be seen and be appreciated even after several viewings. We have included many pictures that will convey some of the quality of this piece; however, it will still surprise and delight even more, when held in person.

Following is just a brief description of some of what is in this piece. To be complete would take more than reasonable here. Please let your eyes tell more of the story. This work is over 49" long, 5 1/2" wide, and over 1 1/4" deep in parts. It is decorated on the sides as well as the front. It includes Crosses, Ankhs, stars, hearts, Bibles, scrolls, spears, and other Masonic, Shriner, Eastern Star, and Odd Fellows symbols. Each section is held together with carved links; and the entire carving is made from one piece of wood. There is one carved ball in cage, relief carving, and a section inlaid with bone or ivory. There are inlaid words, and letters; and it is decorated with a multitude of symbology. This piece is in extremely good condition; although not completely "perfect". There is a slight crack in one link, and one has been reglued in part. There is also a little bit of red color which is on the lowest section. There is no loss that we can see. One section has hand painted the words "Memorial Day 1947". We would date it from that time. The back is inscribed "To Vernon Thompson for Mike". The price is $1250.00.
