Jules Frederick

(1870 - 1954) Phoenix, AZ

Jules Frederick and George Frederick were cousins. The pieces LaFrance, Frederick and Joefrau produced bear a resemblance to the pieces by Jules probably because George based his decoys on Jules’ patterns. Jules carved high quality decoys that may have had an influence on the Plaquemines Parish carvers. Though Jules made excellent decoys, carving never became his primary means of income.
