Charles Jobes started carving at the age of seven, taught by his father, the late Captain Harry Jobes. Located in Havre de Grace, Maryland, he makes traditional hand carved Chesapeake Bay decoys like this handsome, solid wood brant.

This goose is depicted in the highhead pose, with the head turned slightly to its left. The wings and feathers are painted, as are its eyes. It measures 13 inches long, about half the length of an actual male, and to the top of its head it's 7 1/2 inches in height. It's 5 inches wide across the breast and weighs 1 pound 6 ounces. The painted bottom is hand signed "Charles Jobes 1987." Well-carved and nicely painted, this 35 year old decoy is in superb condition, with just minor wear to the paint.

>>> Charles is one of three brothers, all decoy carvers; he has made YouTube videos on carving, alone and with his siblings. One of Charles' many accomplishments was to carve 84 canvasback drake decoys from the mast wood of the boat Rebecca T. Ruark, which was built in 1886 and sunk in a storm in 1999. The decoys were sold to pay for the salvage and restoration of the historic skipjack. The first 20 decoys sold for $500 each and the rest for $1000. The boat now sails the Chesapeake Bay once more.
