Wooden Decoy Ducks Unfinished, Hand Carved, Vintage


  • Details
    Here we have two vintage wooden decoy ducks that are hand carved but unfinished. These are so interesting! They were salvaged from an old work shed of folk artists that retired in the late 90's, near the foothills in north Georgia. The husband of the pair was an incredible wood carver and was very popular in the area for making custom pieces. One of the ducks was closer to being finished, the wood is very smooth, the body and head are perfectly shaped and there are holes carved out for the eyes, where you could put a bead in to make it more natural. The other duck has been formed nearly all the way. A good sanding on the body and head, would probably be all that you would need. Both of them need to have their heads attached. These would be great to paint, stain or leave natual and let the wood form a nice patina over time. This is a rare find!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    If I need to return an item, what is the process?

    If for some reason you are unhappy with your purchase, send a me a message first. I will send you a prepaid label (USPS Priority), you will download it, print it and put it on the package.
    Try to keep all original packaging it came in/with because 1) I would like to get it back packaged safely 2) when I purchase the label, I have to enter weight and box dimensions so I go off of what it was when it was shipped.
    Once I receive the package, you will get a refund on the price of the item plus tax. You will be responsible for shipping cost, so the price you paid for shipping originally will not be refunded.
    I hope you can understand m, that I cannot cover the cost off shipping

    What if I prefer another shipper, such as UPS or Fedex. Will you ship with them?

    Absolutely! Just let me know prior to purchasing and I can calculate shipping based off 1) your shipper preference 2) your desired shipping time 3) your zip code

    Some pieces I do. It will be in the “Shipping” section of the listing. If there is something you see, that I currently don’t have international shipping setup on, send a message and I will consider!

    Will you combine shipping?

    On some things, yes. Sometimes there are pieces that are too fragile for me to comfortably ship with another item. It’s really dependent on the items being purchased. Please message me prior to checkout , to discuss options.
