Customer Question

I was looking tonight on a program and saw antique leather ducks. A previous customer of yours posted pictures of his duck and the stitching are in the same places. Would you have any idea of price or if they are worth anything? We have three ducks.

Hello, My name is***** am one of the expert appraisers here at justanswer and would be happy to help you. Do you have any papers on who the maker is or where they came from?

They have the same stitching as Homer Lawrence leather ducks.
Expert:  LadyTanya65 replied 1 year ago.

There were a few factories that made leather duck decoys with the same stitching and glass eyes. From the photos these were made 1900-1920s The trouble is without having proof who made the decoy the value differs. On a leather decoy duck with no known paperwork they run 300-350.00 each in today's market. If you go through the unit and find any type of papers on them the value can rise depending on who made them. Homer Lawrence is the name to watch for his decoys do run into the thousands in value. Thank you for sharing these and coming to justanswer. If I can be of further help please let me know. Thank you.
