This fall, decoy and sporting relic collectors will find over 300 lots in Guyette and Deeter’s upcoming auction. Session one starts with a Native American princess figure (circa 1880). She wears a feathered headdress, and she holds tobacco leaves in her right hand and a bundle of cigars in her left. The dress she wears features carved tobacco leaves painted in the same color palette as her headdress. The cigar store figure is attributed to Thomas Brooks (1828 – 1895) or Samuel Robb (1851 – 1928). Both were New Yorkers and former ship carvers.
Other notable lots include a selection of decoys. A hollow carved Canada goose decoy is a leading item. It dates back to the early or mid-20th century. The branding iron label underneath reads A.T. Shearer. It bears a slight tuck from the hunting rig of Dr. Ansley Thomas Shearer in Wisconsin. A fish plaque from Oscar Peterson is also available in the sale alongside furniture, watches, and decorative art. Find the full catalog on Bidsquare and register to place a bid.
