For centuries, and as the name implies, estate auctions have been the primary platform for the sale of entire house contents when the heirs do not wish to retain, or simply cannot accommodate, this quantity of familial patrimony. Here at Freeman’s, this has meant that innumerable pieces of fine Philadelphia Chippendale furniture, rare books, fine paintings, and designer-made furnishings have come to our auction block from these quintessential “motivated sellers.” Added to that list of treasures can be found imported furnishings and artworks from England and Europe, Persian carpets, Chinese jades, bronzes and porcelains, property from every category imaginable.
For those needing to furnish a new home, Estates at 1808 is an immediate solution to a daunting task. In addition to the affordable estate property, the auction also includes property originally unsold in one of our numerous fine sales each year. This premium property, now reduced in estimate, could not be more attractive on the market. Whether your style is traditional, mid-century modern, art deco, Biedermeier, Victorian, French provincial or an eclectic mix of everything, Estates at1808 has the décor you are looking for.
Exhibition for Estates at 1808 opens to the public on Saturday, February 18 and features select works from the Estate of Andre and Nancy Brewster, the Estate of Betty Rhoads Wright, and the Estate of George A. “Frolic” Weymouth, and more.
