Photo Gallery > Delaware River Decoy Carving

A unique heritage along the Delaware River was brought to life last night at the Shipman Mansion when David Giannetto told the story of his father, Vincent Giannetto’s, early days. Long before the Delaware River was dredged and straightened, outdoorsmen called the river home and soon Vince taught himself how to make the Delaware River style hunting decoy so he too could hunt. These decoys hold the stories of a lost trade that was shaped by the river. A heart-warming story beautifully narrated. An added plus to the presentation was the display of beautiful carvings by Vincent, now an award-winning Master Carver. Thank you Vincent and David for an awesome night!
