Item Details
Description
Fish Decoy
Andrew Trombley (1919-1975)
Mt. Clemens, MI, c. 1935
12 3/4 in. long

An early and large decoy by this skilled Mt. Clemens carver. Trombley's works stand on their own, though it is worth noting that he worked closely with Hans Janner, among other carvers from the self-proclaimed "Ice Fishing Capital." The head is finished with a rare opened mouth. The grand tail is turned slightly to the left.
Old fishing paint with heavy fishing wear, replaced pectoral fins, lower portion of caudal fin recarved while in use.

Provenance: William C. McMaster M.D. Collection

Literature: Steve Michaan, "American Fish Decoys," Pound Ridge, NY, 2003, pp. 113-175, related fish illustrated.
