This Eskimo Curlew by an unknown carver from New England (last quarter of the 19th century) is an unusual species for a shorebird decoy.  This wonderful example is in original paint, worn from actual use.  It has incised wings, tack eyes, and its original bill which was forged by a blacksmith. It was formerly in the collection of Porter and Patti Hopkins.
