Several of these old decoys were brought to the store a while back, though only a couple of them are suitable to add to a collection. They are constructed of a canvas-like material and filled with chips of cork (I presume). The bills are wood, and wood strips are laced to the undersides. Around the neck is a lead weight attached by a length of cord. If you have an interest in old decoys, these can be had at very reasonable prices.

This is one of the most beautiful pendants I've come across. The oval "matt," which is a thin gold plate containing a monogram, is contained under beveled glass supported by an oval-shaped gold frame. The "photo" of the young girl is composed of a material with which I am unfamiliar; it may be easily replaced if desired. For sale (reluctantly), first floor, $150.
