Unknown Fish Decoy

Just got this from a friend of mine.  Very nice woodburned accents.  Pin eyes.  The style looks familiar but I am unable to identify.  It has nice sweeping fins and evident age.  Natural except for some white painted gill accents that match the fins.  It also has markings over the eyes, like brows.  Could be Native American.  Could be something else.  Whatever it is it is a fantastic piece of Folk Art.

If anyone has a clue about I.D. and the carver's state, let me know what you think.  If you've got pictures of anything else, follow the links to the right and email me.

Always buying vintage decoys and lures, especially folk art, so feel free to contact me.
