Cast aluminium sprung pigeon decoy
An unusual hunting decoy of a pigeon on an oak base. Cast in alumium and attached by a spring to a rod (to give it some life like movement when being used a lure), the underside has a provisional patent lozenge with the number 14173. With remnants of white paint and pleasing signs of use and wear, it makes for an interesting decorative piece or could even be used on a shoot once more.
36.5cm long (14-3/8")
10.5cm wide (4-1/8")
16.5cm tall to top of head (6-1/2")
Block - 10.2cm (4") x 11.5cm (4-1/2")
Wear, scratches and paint losses commensurate with age and use, with some rust to the rod & spring. No breaks or significant damage though, and displays very nicely.
International customers and combined shipping
International buyers (outside of the UK) - When you add an item to your cart you can select a shipping destination and the postage will be calculated. Usually this is correct, but for multiple purchases and larger items it is advisable to enquire before purchasing, as shipping is based on rough estimates to different regions and may vary to that stated. You may 'buy it now' with the shipping cost calculated, but if this is incorrect we may contact you after purchase. We will either issue a refund for the difference, or request for a remaining postage balance to be paid, either way we will always contact you before any changes are made. Our standard postage costs include tracking where possible and usually require a signature upon receipt, please also include a contact phone number when ordering. Postage to P.O. boxes must be enquired about before purchase as many shippers do not deliver to them.
*Multiple purchases - If you would like to purchase multiple items we can usually combine shipping. It is best to message us first for a shipping quote, but to avoid missing out you can purchase items through the website immediately without paying a shipping fee. Add the desired pieces to your cart, then view your cart and in order summary there is a drop down menu with postage options. Select *Multiple purchases & combined shipping* and the shipping price will be removed. You can now pay for your selected items and we will contact you with a shipping quote to then be paid separately.
