Freeman’s English & Continental Furniture and Decorative Arts Department offers a wide-range of property consigned from estates and private collections. Focused on works from the eighteenth and nineteenth-centuries, these sales include pieces from the Baroque to the mid twentieth-century, often with a strong representation of eighteenth-century English furniture and furnishings. The three sales each year in January, May, and October are traditionally highpoints of our auction calendar and attract a strong national and international client-base.
Highlights from recent auctions include:
· Russian guilloché, champlevé, and cloisonné enameled silver-gilt icon of the Lord Almighty by Ivan Tarabrov and retailed by Fabergé sold for $37,500
· An important ormolu mounted Russian Imperial hand painted gilt decorated porcelain urn from The Collection of Robert & Barbara Safford brought $494,500
· A very fine gilt metal mounted Meissen porcelain and gilt metal mounted giltwood secretaire cabinet from The Collection of Robert & Barbara Safford sold for $254,500
The record setting 'white glove' auction of The Collection of Robert & Barbara Safford in September 2013 brought buyers from around the world, achieving $3.9 million overall. Freeman’s international team of specialists and consultants are committed to providing each client with the best service and advice possible about the current market. We welcome consignments from single objects to entire collections and respond with discretion and expertise.
