Harry Seymour is from Bemus Point of Lake Chautauqua New York in the mid 1800s. Seymour decoys are solid and strong block forms and dull in color. He applied a bright red paint to the gill slits of his decoys and has been copied many times as his decoys bring high dollars when being offered.
Beware of Copies & Fakes - www.fishdecoy.com shows some of Seymour's work for comparison.
This is an unverified example of Seymour's work. This was offered on eBay in June 2007 by eBayer captirv from Bath New York.
