The 2017 Core Sound Heritage Auction is an incredible opportunity to own an extraordinary Core Sound decoy. Twenty significant decoys will be offered at auction, in-person & online, Saturday, December 2nd starting at 4pm and ending at 4:30pm. The auction, conducted by Walter House of House Auction Company, is THE auction of the weekend.  Bidding begins Nov. 18th. 

In partnership with the Carolina Decoy Collectors Association, this gathering of decoys is the result of the dedication of a group of collectors who have given prized carvings from their collection to support the work of the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum & Heritage Center.  All contributions to this auction are 100% donations to the Museum and its role in preserving the traditions of Core Sound.

The provided auction catalog gives a glimpse of the knowledge of decoy historians from decades of recordings, writings and handwritten notes. It serves as a foundational document for “why” these decoys are being offered for the 2017 CSWM&HC Heritage Auction and why these pieces have an important place in Core Sound decoy history.
