American Furniture, Folk & Decorative Arts

Freeman’s American Furniture, Folk & Decorative Arts department specializes in property ranging from the early eighteenth through the twentieth-century, featuring exceptional material from New England to the Southern States. Our sales offer a superb variety of consignments: furniture, fine silver, export porcelain, ceramics, glassware, textiles, maritime art and objects, portraiture, historical and landscape paintings, decoys, and folk art. Two sales are conducted annually: the first in April, coinciding with the Philadelphia Antique Show, and the second a two-day auction in November that includes our annual Pennsylvania Sale, which is exclusive to Freeman’s. This auction features furniture, paintings, decorative and folk items made and used in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, from the Colonial period to the turn of the twentieth-century.

Highlights from recent auctions include:

  • An extraordinary fraktur by George Geistweit and dated 1801 from Centre County, sold for $367,000
  • A painted and decorated yellow pine blanket chest attributed to Johannes Spitler (1774-1837) brought $350,500
  • Rare thirteen star American Revolutionary Flag achieved $212,500


Freeman’s attracts an international audience through its catalogs and website, and is best known for continually offering quality material. We welcome consignments, from single items to entire estates, and always employ an effective marketing strategy to maximize auction results. Please contact a member of our American Furniture, Folk & Decorative Arts department if you wish to discuss buying or consigning works with Freeman’s.
