Video: The Art of Deception


Learn About Decoys

What are duck decoys, and how did they become sought-after collectibles? "The Art of Deception" looks at hand carved decoys as an underappreciated form of American folk art.

Featuring interviews with some of our major decoy collector/dealers and contemporary carvers.
