On Friday, February 17, Copley Fine Art Auctions, the nation’s premier decoy and sporting art auction house, will offer over 450 lots of the finest antique and contemporary decoys and American sporting art at the American Theater in Charleston, South Carolina. Copley’s sporting sales have led the field with first-rate offerings and results for the past decade. Highlights include a Frank Schoonover painting Trappers on the Lake ($150/250,000), important watercolors by Frank W. Benson, two quintessential Edmund Osthaus oil paintings, the Ernest and Carolyn Kramer Collection of American Prints, and exemplary works by sporting art masters. Decoy highlights include a stellar selection of works by A.E. Crowell, such as a rare “dust jacket” plover in original paint and emerging plumage ($30/40,000). Also set to cross the block is a rare Charles Birch swan ($60/70,000) and a flying mallard pair with outstretched wings carved and painted by the Ward brothers of Crisfield, Maryland ($40/50,000).

Online bidding on over 450 items will be available through Bidsquare and Copley Live. A full-color catalog will be available. The auction will take place at the American Theater in Charleston, South Carolina. Bidding will commence at 11 am on Friday, February 17, with a preview from 8:30 am to 10:30 am.
