Legacy is Foundation of Pennsylvania & American Auction at Freeman's
Pair of Gilded Cornucopia Wall Brackets. Est. $15,000-$25,000.

PHILADELPHIA, PA.- Freeman’s announced the upcoming Americana and 5th Anniversary Pennsylvania Sale auctions, to be held November 20 & 21. The sales, which will contain 462 and 275 lots respectively, will highlight the best in American craftsmanship with objects that herald from extraordinary American families.

To see the exhibition of works is to see centuries of history and legacy in one room. Many of the works, including the Edward Duffield Tall Case Clock (illustrated) and David Deshler’s Chippendale Chairs, are native to Philadelphia, having belonged to prominent Philadelphia citizens since their creation. The Tall Case Clock was crafted by Edward Duffield, a founding member of the Philadelphia Philosophical Society and friend to Benjamin Franklin.

In addition, the auction will feature an outstanding collection of Shaker Furniture, originally collected by Julia C. Spring in Maine. Twenty six Samplers (illustrated) will be for auction, after being deaquisitioned by the Burlington County Historical Society in an effort to raise funds for broader community outreach.

The sale will also offer some interesting finds for those who treasure literary history with a Civil War Manuscript Diary, dated 1862. The Diary was written by Private William H. Paul, a Philadelphian who was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Additionally, an Engraving of the Declaration of Independence by John Binns (1819) will be offered at auction. The Engraving includes circular vignettes representing George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock and the 13 original colonies.

Another important piece from the Stevenson Easby Collection, a pair of Classical Gilded Cornucopia Wall Brackets (circa 1820-1825), will be a prize item (illustrated). The pair in their original gilding, are a rare find. They are documented in Hornor’s Bluebook, Philadelphia Furniture 1682-1807, presenting a rare purchase opportunity.

Lynda Cain, Vice President & Department Head at Freeman’s is in high spirits, “It’s wonderful to present these significant objects. These items belonged to extraordinary citizens of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and America, and soon that legacy will be inherited by the new buyer.”

With craftsmanship traditions in the Shaker and Chippendale styles, Cain’s enthusiasm is not misplaced. The new and seasoned buyer will find a broad range of excellent options at the Americana & Pennsylvania auctions, which will provide a unique opportunity to own a piece of fine American craft, and fine American history.
