Customer Question
I have 3 well...

I have 3 well kept duck decoys who were my fathers. They were made over eighty years ago by a man who lived in around Vallejo where my dad was raised. My dad was around 11 or 12 years old. The old man who craved them from old railroad ties they hand craved and painted. My dad passed away about 5years ago ( he was 84) Do you need some pictures ?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

They are in excellent condition. At least compared to pictures I've seen on line
