Black Duck Decoy by
Gene Hendrickson

A early Black Duck decoy
that has a "sock" over it,
It looks to have some repaint
along with original paint. It
has a chip of wood off under
the bill. A early Hendrickson.

J. Eugene Hendrickson
(1899 - 1971) Northfield, New
Jersey. Gene Hendrickson is
remembered as one of
Northfield's most notable
watermen. He created decoys
and hunting boats ("sneak
boxes") of exceptional quality.
His decoys were carved from
local white cedar. The bodies
are hollow, tails are long
ending in a point. Heads have
detailed carved bills. He often
branded his birds on the
bottom with the initials,
"J.E.H." Hendrickson carved
from patterns shared with
Mark Kern (1888 - 1972)
another well known Northfield
carver. He provided ballast by
pouring hot lead into an inlet
he cut into the bottom of the
decoy in the manner of Harry
V. Shourds (1871 - 1920), a
regional carver of note.
Hendrickson's later decoys
are somewhat larger than
life-size. He is credited with
having carved some very fine
Canada geese, brant,
canvasback, broadbill,
redhead, merganser, black
duck, mallard & pintail decoys.
