MAGNIFICENT AND IMPORTANT OIL ON CANVAS OF THE SIDE-WHEELER THOMAS P. WAY BY JAMES BARD (1815-1897). Painting shows side-wheeler sailing right to left flying flags and in motion. The ship takes up most of the length of the canvas and has a backdrop of luministic sky with hills as background. This painting comes to us handed down from its original owner through the family. The painting is signed by James Bard in the lower right hand corner “Drawn & painted by James S. Bard, N.Y. 1860 152 Perry St.”. This painting dates from the midpoint of James career. A point at which his most memorable work was produced. Thomas P. Way was a livestock merchant New York’s Washington Market and was one of the original stockholders in the Keyport (New Jersey) and Middletown Steamboat Company, owners of Thomas P. Way. She was enrolled in July of 1859 and sold in August to the Staten Island & New York Ferry Company, -for a profit. Way himself died in 1863. There are two versions of Thomas P. Way by Bard, one dated 1859 is inscribed “Built by Terry at Keyport, 1859.” This version, dated 1860, would have been executed for another client, possibly for an executive with the ferry company. Thomas P. Way ran until 1888 when she burned at a Newark, New Jersey dock. One of the finest fresh Bard side-wheelers to come on the market in many years.

RARE EARLY CAST IRON CANVAS BACK SINK BOX DECOY FROM NORTH CAROLINA. Late in the 19th Century, sink boxes were special boats that floated nearly level with the surface of the water. The hunter would lie down inside the boat with decoys all around him in the water and wait until he could lure ducks within shooting range. Heavy cast iron, decoy-shaped weights were placed on the flat outside edges of the boat that would help hold the boat at water level, but also, while the hunter was moored, waiting for ducks, these would help lure the ducks in. This cast iron weight was used at the Gooseville Gun Club in Rodanthe, NC late in the 19th C. and is currently painted black. SIZE: Approx. 13″ l. CONDITION: Overall good condition, was repainted black many years ago. 9-92386 (750-1,250)

OUTSTANDING CARVED AND PAINTED WARD BROS. MALLARD DECOY FROM CRISFIELD, MARYLAND. The Ward Brothers were two simple and charming country characters from Crisfield, MD. They began carving in the first quarter of the 20th C. and continued to carve and paint until their death in the late 20th C. They are probably two of the most famous decoy carvers in the world. A museum is named for them and an international carving competition that takes place in Maryland carries their name. Their hunting decoys are highly sought after by sportsmen from all over North America and their decorative decoys are equally in demand. This is an example of their decorative work. Its head is turned at a lifelike 45-degree angle. Its form and paint patternation clearly indicates why they became so extremely popular. This is signed and dated by “1971 L.T. Ward Brothers, Crisfield, Maryland. Len Ward, Steve Ward”. This was a decorative bird and meant to ornament a mantelpiece. SIZE: 18″ l. CONDITION: Some paint shrinkage at the left side of the breast, otherwise original and generally excellent. 9-92385 (2,500-3,500)
