British Furniture & Decorative Arts
Freeman’s dedicated team of specialists has established their international reputation with successful sales in the field of British furniture and decorative arts, including silver. The department covers all areas of British design; English, Scottish, and Irish objects from the Renaissance through the Georgian, Queen Anne, Regency, Victorian, Edwardian, and Arts & Crafts periods. Works in these genres are the highlights of our sales at our Philadelphia flagship and online, reflecting the breadth of our department’s knowledge of the field.
Freeman’s British Furniture & Decorative Arts sales focus on fine British cabinetmaking from the 17th to 19th-centuries and feature pieces by known craftsmen such as Chippendale, Heppelwhite, Gillows, Oakley, as well as silver and objects by Storr, de Lamerie, and Matthew Boulton. British sales also include fine Chinese Export porcelain, objects from the Raj, British glass and ceramics, as well as fine bronzes and metalwork. Freeman’s has also sold collections of fine British antiques from some of America’s most notable families, and these sales with their exceptional provenances are often desirable for collectors.
Freeman’s holds British Furniture & Decorative Arts auctions twice annually, and through our website, we have become an online leader in sales in this area. To schedule a private, complimentary consultation, please contact one of our specialists for an appointment.
