Vintage-Charles Perdew-Pintail Drake-Wooden Duck Decoy:
$550

Vintage - by the famous - Illinois River Carver - Charles Perdew [Sr.] [ NOT HARLAN JR. his son]- Original -

Pintail Drake - Wooden Duck Decoy - best guess on age 1930'ish. Charles & Edna Perdew were from Henry,IL-

he carved & she painted. Enormous information can be found on the web w/ a google search for the "Newbies".

This decoy was apart of a Elgin,IL - Duck Hunting Clubs spread used down on the Illinois River's club grounds

they owned or leased for many years 1920-30's-perhaps 40's[ I'm simply not sure of the start -stop dates]. The

club pooled their money and bought a spread of decoys from 'old Charley" & returned them to him,in the off-

season, to be refurbished as needed. For a fee he did as ask, repairs &repainting were done as needed. The

completed decoys were ready by the "opener" each year. This particular decoy was saved by a old member till

he died& his family sold it. The remaining decoys fate is unknown to me. This one you can afford ---- Ask your

Wife! Own a piece of history.

CONDITION: hand carved working decoy [ spread carried in a burlap bag], original, refurbished by Charley &

Edna Perdew in Henry,IL old shop [at some point in time]- look at how Charley repaired a cracked neck, pintail

drake, I don't see any lead pellet holes,original wheel weight lead keel [ look for dating] that come with decoy,

minor paint missing, traces of the defining combing that Edna often used can be seen in places on the body,

. Please LOOK at all 12 clear photo's for the more & best fine details.

I believe this to be the work of original Charles Perdew [SR.][famous woodcarver] - pintail drake wood decoy.

I have not altered it in any way since I purchased it nearly 20 years ago.

What you see - is what you get.

Original keel weight on the bottom w/ ------ Henry . . . Perdew . . . ILL. --- Check it out!

Two good glass eyes.

Back Feathers hand painted.

No known problem not pictured & shown.

No wood chips or nothing missing.

Made offour pieces of wood - I don't know what kind. Look for the joint lines - glued I assume.

Perdew pintails drakes have sold from $1000 - $62,100 in the past 5 years. Check my word if you doubt me!

I'll start CHEAP! ! !

DO YOU WANT IT? ----------------------- offer NOW -------- DON"T WAIT!
