Hinton Antiques

 Hollow Body Redhead Drake Decoy By Warren Meiler (1922 - 2012)

hintonHinton Antiques is located in Washago, Ontario
Warren Meiler was greatly influenced by Ken Anger (1905 - 1961) They were hunting buddies and friends. By the late 1960's Warren Meiler began carving his birds in the Anger fashion. Collectors seek age, form, condition and provenance. We feel that when a hunter carves gunning birds and never uses them this is as good as it gets. The Redhead Drake and Hen we present to you are not mantel birds. They are hollow bodied gunning birds that have never been used and are 45+ years old. size - 14" x 6 1/2 " x 5" ( Note M brand on bottom)
