Antique wood pigeon decoy - 'T&H'

MARC KITCHEN-SMITH
An early carved wood pigeon decoy, typical of those supplied by the London gunsmith firm of Trulock and Harriss in the late 19th/early 20th century. All of their decoys were notable for the amount of carved feather definition they were given.

This example is one of their rarer ones; individually carved wings have been added so that they can be posed fully extended rather than closed. Each wing has beautifully carved primary feathers.

The decoy has its original glass eyes, original cast brass beak and, although now well worn, it still has most of its original paintwork. It has obviously seen a lot of use over the years, evident in the shotgun pellet holes! Over all in good condition, with no repairs or restoration.

Dimensions: 

  • W: 39cm (15.35in)
  • D: 24cm (9.45in)

Period: 

c.1890–1910

Marc has been successfully dealing in decorative antiques for over 15 years, fuelled by his lifelong passion for artefacts of the past. His workshop, a converted Methodist Sunday School, is located on the edge of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall.

He successfully mixes styles and periods to create his own unique collection of ‘delightful objects’. Good design, craftsmanship, colour and an age-worn patina all play their part in his discerning approach to buying. His selection of stock is often based on its aesthetic appeal rather than its age, and he loves to find items that have a story to tell.

Visits to Marc’s workshop and stores can be arranged by appointment.
