The Story

Each of these Handcarved Fence-Post Ducks is different—sometimes the color is a deep red, sometimes a honey-gold. Many times, it is somewhere in between. More than a hundred years ago, homesteaders along the Rocky Mountains staked out new land by planting fence posts around their property. They strung barbed wire and the era of free-range cattle and sheep came to an end. The wood was naturally insect and weather resistant, and many survive to this day. About fifteen years ago, woodworker Wayne Murray got the idea to create a duck out of this remarkable wood, and now Colorado Springs artist Tim Bergren carries on the same tradition of his mentor before him. Cedar. Made in USA.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Collectible I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my husband. It is beautiful and unique. However, I am a bit disappointed that the carving is not one piece. The head/neck is carved separately and placed on the body. Who knows if the head was carved from the "100 year old" fence post or just a piece of cedar? Beautiful nonetheless...the ad should show the carving in two pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ...the answer is "Yes", you'll love them Choked a long time on the price... To celebrate a success I ordered all three sizes and am thrilled. Simply put... months later I've yet to pick up and examine any of them without noticing something new and impressive. The combination of the history, the artistry and the natural beauty will make these a standout in your office or den. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Christmas Present The hand carved fence post duck was absolutely the best Christmas gift. I stop short of saving "ever" because I have been blessed with others in my time. Having said that my son selected the Orvis product due to appreciating Orvis quality for many years. I have been told, I am difficult please...but my son hit the bull's eye with this duck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love My Ducks I have bought 3 medium and 2 small Fence-Post Ducks in the last year for myself and two family members. Each one is unique and beautifully crafted. I thoroughly enjoy the two I have. For me it was money well spent for the pleasure I get in return.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from LOOKS GREAT BUT VERY SMALL! I bought this to place on my mantle, luckly it was a small place because this duck is very small! Quality of the duck is very good but the size for the price is a bit much.
