The Peter Brown Decoy Collection by Guyette & Deeter - Issuu
Decoys did not bring memories of past hunts, duck retrieving dogs or time spent in duck blinds. He has never used decoys as a tool to deceive waterfowl — he has never shot a duck. Can a person who has never shot a duck really understand or appreciate an old pedigreed wooden decoy? Can a person who has never studied decoys from a blind, not thought of market hunters, duck clubs, outlaw gunners or wrapped his cold hands around the neck of a warm duck fully appreciate the old wooden carving? The answer as illustrated by the collection is an emphatic yes.

One could argue that, after the human body, the most frequently sculpted form has been the duck, especially during the last two centuries. To this day, if one enters a craft shop or a china store, one can be almost certain to find on display examples of wildfowl in wood, porcelain and other mediums. Ducks are by nature curious and of an exceptionally gregarious nature.
