Yellow Garage dealer Jersea Shore Antiques presents a hand carved and painted widgeon decoy with glass eyes. The decoy was made in the 1940s by the master carver and decoy maker Lloyd Johnson (1910-1965) of Bayhead, New Jersey. In 1996 The Ocean County Historical Museum presented "the first public exhibit devoted primarily to the work of Barnegat Bay carvers." Lloyd Johnson was among the 18 distinguished carvers recognized in this historic exhibit. This widgeon decoy has obviously drawn its share of live widgeons to the area’s lakes and waterways shown by its age appropriate paint loss. The pictures provide the best description. The decoy measures 14 3\4” from bill to tail, 7 1\2” to the top of the head and 9” across the pad weight. This is a rare offering of a historically significant widgeon decoy, created by a premier artist considered to be among the best of the "old-time" carvers.
