1st item: Turned wood and metal cedar crow call, the side with impressed mark “Chas. H. Perdew/Henry, Ill/Pat. Nov ? 1900”. 5″ L. Note: Charles Perdew (1874 – 1963) began making carved duck and crow calls and decoys around 1898. He married his wife Edna Haddon in 1902, the young woman who he had hired to paint his decoys. By 1909, he had obtained a patent for his crow call. His calls are considered among the best for calling down crows and ducks. 2nd item: Turned wood and metal duck crow call, the metal band marked “C.H. DITTO KEITHSBURG ILL.” 5″ L. Turn of the 20th century. Note: Charles Ditto (1865-1935) of Keithsburg, Illinois was another of the early call makers. He made hard rubber reed duck and crow calls using a molded rubber toneboard. Most of his calls used a metal sleeve inside their barrels and a metal-tube insert to hold the toneboard and reed. (Courtesy: The Callmakers and Collectors Association of America). Provenance: The estate of Jean A. Yeatman and Harry C. Yeatman, formerly of Hamilton Place Plantation (near Columbia, Tennessee). CONDITION: Both overall good condition with general wear.
