Pair Antique Illinois River Bluebill Decoys

Circa 1920-1940

This handsome pair of second quarter 20th century Illinois River bluebill working decoys measure 12" long, 6 1/2" high, and 5" wide and feature wonderfully carved wings and unusual painted wood eyes set with tiny finishing nails. These old working decoys are in good condition with a few minor losses and cracks, but they are structurally sound and absolutely gorgeous in their old, if not orginial, paint. The carver of this fine pair of bluebills is unknown to us, but it is obvious that he took great care in both carving and decorating his birds. Note, too, that there a is an old museum or collection number on the bottom of each bird. The previous owner was obviously very proud of these ducks. This is an excellent pair of antique Illinois River decoys at a very affordable price.
