Rigging Out Decoys, Currituck Sound, N.C. by Eric Sloane. 8.5″ tall x 15″ wide, 10.25″ tall x 16.75″ wide framed. Very uncommon print, but not a standard print. Rigging Out Decoys, Currituck Sound, N.C. was created for a lampshade, part of a small series of lampshades that Eric Sloane illustrated for his sister, Dorothy. This particular image was made to be attached to a round metal lampshade frame to become a functioning lampshade for a lamp that included a series of color illustrations of ducks (I believe they were drawn by Dorothy) as part of the lamp base. I’ve only seen one of these lamps in person, and that is in Eric’s recreated studio at The Eric Sloane Museum in Kent, Connecticut.
These shades and the lamps to which they were attached were made some time in the 1950s. They probably were carried at Abercrombie & Fitch’s Madison Avenue, New York, store. The sixth floor of the establishment housed a bookstore an art gallery and a gift shop, Sloane’s sporting themed-work being offered in all three venues. They were definitely carried by “The Crossroad of Sport”, 15 East 54th Street, New York. Their 50 page catalog for 1954-1955 included two paintings by Eric Sloane – “”Lingaur Slopes, Austria – Skiing” for $425.00 and “Trout Fishing – The Smith Bridge Hole, Brandywine, Delaware” for $400.00 – and an entry concerning these lamps on page 47:
