Artist Richard Morgan hand-carves this charming bobwhite quail and chick in his Connecticut studio, with antique decoys as his inspiration. The New York Times called Morgan “one of the nation’s best-known decoy carvers.” Named for the sound of their distinctive whistle, these secretive birds are found all over the U.S. Although bobwhites are a solitary species, family groups called coveys can be spotted during late summer roosts.


Hand-carved in the U.S. 6"W x 5"H x 3"D.


For more than 30 years, Richard Morgan has one of the most well-known bird decoy carvers. Working from his Connecticut studio, he carves up to 8,000 decoys a year according to a 1999 profile in the New York Times. He observes birds in the wild and works from memory to create his signature works of art.

              Comments about Hand-carved Bobwhite Quail and Chick:

              I've had my eye on this piece for a while. It was hard for me to justify spending full price, but when it went on sale I could not resist!
              Our Craftsman-style home is decorated with predominately nature inspired items - handmade preferred. The bobwhite quail and chick are a great addition to the carved bird collection on the mantle. They are a pleasant reminder of the bobwhites that still can be seen and heard out east.
              It is signed by the artist Richard Morgan on the bottom and would make a great gift for nature and bird lovers.

              In China, seal carving is such a revered skill that it's regarded as one of the "four treasured arts," along with painting, calligraphy, and poetry. Seals, also called chops, are used to sign everything from official documents to works of art. Often topped with elaborate carved motifs, the "name" end is dipped in brilliant red seal paste and stamped onto the paper.

              This graceful cameo is hand-carved in the southern Italian town of Torre del Greco, at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, using the pink and ivory of the conch shell. The artist delicately carves away the outer layer of the shell to shape a young woman’s profile. Cameos became popular souvenirs for English tourists visiting the newly rediscovered ruins of Pompeii during the Elizabethan era. Sterling silver. Signed by the artist.

              The population of lions in the wild has been decimated since the mid-20th century. Zimbabwe, where this fierce lion is hand-carved from rapoko soapstone, is one of only a handful of countries where these kings and queens of the jungle are still found in the wild. Please accept variations in each unique stone.

              Western Kenya’s Kisii tribe live in the rich agricultural highlands in Nyanza. In addition to farming crops like sorghum and millet and raising livestock on their lands, the Kisii have a strong craft tradition that includes basketry and soapstone carving. Soapstone is easy to carve and is quarried in the nearby Tabaka Hills. Intricate patterns featuring interlocked loops and cut-outs are a hallmark of Kisii carving style.

              Shona art, created by Zimbabwe's largest tribe, is one of the most significant art forms to come out of Africa in the 20th century. Family relationships, such as this pair, are often represented by the animal kingdom in Shona art. The artists believe that their chiseling and polishing releases the spirit form that is trapped within the rapoka stone. As each piece is one of a kind, please expect variation in the color and veining of the stone.
