Silver & Objets de Vertu
Freeman’s Silver & Objets de Vertu Department employs a combination of expertise and global exposure when working with private buyers and discriminating collectors who hope to maximize their sale’s results. The limelight at auction often falls on pieces by illustrious makers such as Buccellati, Tiffany & Co., Fabergé, and Georg Jensen. Freeman’s dedicated team of specialists in this area have a well-established international reputation for their successful sales of silver, both through our Philadelphia-based auction house and online.
Our experts’ extensive knowledge of silver and its current market is essential to the successful sale of silver and objets de vertu pieces in gold, cloisonné and enamel. Pieces are often works by famed Italian, Dutch, and French creators, and other international craftsmen. Freeman’s offers magnificent English and Continental silver from the seventeenth to the nineteenth-centuries, as well as Modern and Post-War pieces. In addition to fine tableware, centerpieces, candelabra, and flatware services, these auctions highlight objets de vertu, which encompasses Russian enamel; gold boxes; scent bottles; and card and cigarette cases, among other items.
Freeman’s has two in-house Silver & Objets de Vertu auctions annually, in the spring and the fall. Sales are also conducted via our online auctions, and through our website, we have become a leader in hosting online sales for buying and selling silver and objets de vertu.
