$1,350.00
Fish decoys by Leroy Howell are highly collectible and in great demand. The
decoys with the multicolored dot designs are called "flowered" decoys and are
among the most collectible. This example represents the early "flowered" period
of the early 1930s and has the highly collectible bullnose body form. The length is
just over 6" and the decoy is finished in a beautiful red and cream with black, red
and white flowers. The face is natural, unpainted wood with additional flowering of
red and white. The eyes are double incised and painted white around a black
pupil. The fins are natural tin with red and white flowering on both the top and
bottom. The belly is also flowered in black and white. This decoy is more highly
decorated than many from this period and its collector rating is extremely high. It
is in beautiful, original condition with normal light wear to the paint from age and
use. The surface is nice and dry and the color bold and bright.
