Nice 7 ½” Red & White Ice Spear Fishing Decoy with an Appealing Style by Leo Miller ((1909 – 1993), Westport, Minnesota, circa 1950s. It appears that Miller’s Fish were successful since this piece shows decent use with Some Flaking and Wear. The Paint is All Original with a Wood Body, Metal Fins and Thumb Tack Eyes. All Miller’s Fish were Hand Carved with a sanded finish. See Petersen’s Folk Art Fish Decoys. No Stand Included. Highly Collectible Minnesota Fish.

Raven’s Way is pleased to offer a Composition Etching of Upper Mid-West Spear Fishing Decoys with Extensive Hand Colored Remarques by the Artist Tim Callahan from Michigan, circa Mid-1990s. Callahan has an incredibly diverse background in the art world from Pin Striping Cars to Abstract Painting, and I was very lucky to be friends with Tim in the 1990s. In the past I sold numerous Hunting and Fishing Etchings by Tim and have a fair number of Waterfowl Etchings, all Hand Colored and Remargued in my Decoy Collection. This Rare Spearing Fish Decoy Etching #8/50 with its Extensive Remarquing is a Classic Early Work by Tim, before he started traveling the world and fully developing his incredibly wide range of artistic skills. The Image itself is 7 ¼” x 6 ½” (fully framed 14 ½” x 14”+ and Represents a Montage of Ice Spear Fishing and the Decoys Used; it is basically a History of Spear Fishing in Art. This is the Perfect Work of Art for the Fish Decoy Collector. The Etching is Numbered, Titled, and Signed in Pencil. Excellent Original Condition in an Acid Free Museum Quality Frame.

Well Carved 5 ¼” Brown Trout Ice Spear Fishing Decoy by Rich Treml (now a Catholic Priest), Detroit, Michigan, circa 1980s. Treml does an Extremely Well Carved and Realistically Painted Fish Decoy, though I don’t know if he carves anymore. This Little Beauty has a Carved Mouth and Gills, Carved Painted Eyes, Rasp Carved Wood Tail, Metal Fins, and Two Belly Weights. The Paint is in Excellent Original Condition. Treml’s Initials are cut into the Front Belly Weight as a “T” with a Smaller “R” attached to the “T” on the right side. A Super Little Fish Decoy. (Stand Not Included.)

Classic “Sunfish” Ice Spear Fishing Decoy by Rudy Zwieg (1917 – 2008), Alexandria, Minnesota, circa 1990s. Zwieg was a well respected and admired fish decoy carver from Minnesota and his work is referenced in both Donald Petersen’s Folk Art Fish Decoys and his Fish Decoy Makers Past and Present; in fact, the latter work provides a photo of a very similar Sunfish on pg. 127. This Sunfish Decoy is in Mint Original Condition has Zwieg’s “RZ” on the Bottom. It measures 4 ¾” in length, 2 ½” in height, and is a Classic Example of Zwieg’s Sunfish Decoys. (Stand Not Included.)
