RICHMOND, VA.- Freeman’s, America’s oldest auction house, specializing in the sale of fine art, antiques, and jewelry, announced the September opening of their second southeast regional office at 5401 Patterson Avenue in the historic capital city of Richmond. The new office will provide the area with a local connection to the global art market through auction and appraisal services as well as cultural events and community involvement.

“Freeman’s is a world class auction house with an established international presence. Our firm maintains a strong a focus on client service and is built on the experience of our specialists, all of whom possess a comprehensive knowledge of their fields and market conditions. We’re excited to bring our expertise to the greater Richmond area,” said Vice President Colin Clarke.

Business Development Director Holen Miles Lewis added, “For the past ten years, the Southeast office has successfully assisted Virginians with buying and selling fine art, antiques, jewelry, and more at auction. We’re enthusiastic about the expansion and the services we’re offering to the region, whether we’re helping individuals enhance their collections or assisting families with their estates.”

Recent works from Virginia sold at Freeman’s auction include:
• A painted and decorated pine blanket chest made by Johannes Spitler (1774-1837), sold for $350,500

In addition to Freeman’s auction services, the regional office is committed to the Richmond community. Presently, Freeman’s Southeast office is a corporate sponsor to the Virginia Museum of Fine Art, one of the very best museums in the country, and the new office promises to build a greater presence with events that are free and open to the public:
