Welcome to my website Specializing in Antique, Old, Vintage, Collectible Wooden Duck Hunting Decoys For Sale. As seen of T.V.'s Auction Hunters. This site is dedicated to vintage and antique wooden and collectible duck hunting decoys of the Pacific Coast. WestCoastDecoys.com.
Among antique duck decoy collectors the west coast is known for producing such talented vintage wooden decoy makers as Richard "Fresh Air Dick" Janson, Horace "Hie" Crandall, Charles Bergman, William McLellan, Ed Snyder, Charles Pice, Captain Olsen, Amiel Garibaldi and Jerry Mastin. Along with the great cast of well known old decoy makers are numerous less well known, or even unknown, vintage wooden duck hunting decoy makers.
My goal is to offer some high quality collectible, vintage wooden pacific coast decoys by the well known antique decoy makers and introduce vintage decoy collectors nation-wide to some quality antique decoys by the less well known California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia early duck decoy makers.
In addition, there will surely be some stray migrants from far off regions. I have been successfully supplying our factory antique decoy collecting friends with the more readily found west coast vintage decoy species. For example, the mason decoy company seems to have filled far more orders out west for green-winged teal, pintail and wigeon decoys.
The navigation bar at the top of the page will allow you to search for vintage decoys available by region. If you see anything that interests you, or just want to chat about old wooden decoys, drop me an e-mail or give me a call. Be sure to check back often as I'll be frequently adding some interesting items. I'd greatly appreciate it if you'd pass this site on to your antique decoy and folk art collecting friends.
Should you have a need for my appraisal services (whether a single vintage decoy or entire collection of antique decoys), please don't hesitate to ask.
In addition, I handle all aspects of representation including collection management, marketing and antique decoy auction representation.
Thanks for visiting and happy decoy hunting!
