This great folky blue jay is one of several birds by Arthur Eisner of Chester Basin, Nova Scotia that I recently purchased from a private collection . I have a collection of them myself, but these are all duplicates for me, so am able to offer these for sale. Eisner's birds are getting very hard to find even individually, so a collection this large is quite a rare opportunity.
A ( Arthur ) Eisner was born in 1922 in Marriott's Cove , Nova Scotia. He ran an autobody business with his brother and when retired turned to carving to fill his time. He sold his carvings ( predominately birds ) from a table near a local supermarket in the 1980's and 90's , before passing away in 2000.
