A rare carved and painted Wood Pigeon decoy, c. 1930, attributed to James Reed. This is one of a whole rig of similar vintage pigeon decoys that was found in a barn in Devon. This was possibly the carver/maker, and as they were all of the same rig, it can be assumed they were all carved by this person. Carved beech, with mainly original paintwork.Nice detail to wing tips. A rare design with a distinctive profile.
