Freeman's appoints new SVP & Division Head of American & European Furniture & Decorative Arts
Nicholson comes to Freeman’s with more than 20 years of auction and art advisory experience.

PHILADELPHIA, PA.- Freeman’s announced Nicholas B. A. Nicholson has joined the team as Senior Vice President, Division Head of American & European Furniture & Decorative Arts effective immediately. Nicholson will also lead the English & Continental Furniture & Decorative Arts department at Freeman’s, which includes silver, objets de vertu, and Russian works of art.

“We are thrilled to welcome Nick to Freeman’s. With a wide-ranging knowledge of European furniture and decorative arts and Fabergé to Americana and 20th Century Design, he will be an invaluable to asset to our firm,” said Freeman’s President Paul Roberts.

Nicholson comes to Freeman’s with more than 20 years of auction and art advisory experience and has worked with private collectors, international museums, institutions, and independent appraisal firms. While he is considered an expert on Russian works of art, his background, interests, and expertise are broad and cover such diverse areas as American neoclassicism, Tiffany silver, and 20th century jewelry, among others.

Nicholson began his career working for a premier dealer in continental furniture and decorative arts. He joined Christie’s Continental Furniture and Decorative Arts department in the early 1990s, where he was involved in the cataloguing and auctions of Alice Tully, Bernheimer & Co., and Rudolf Nureyev. He was quickly promoted to specialist within Christie’s New York Russian Department and sold important Russian works from the estates of Landsell Christie, Jane Englehardt and Frank Sinatra. He also participated in the landmark sale of the Fabergé Imperial 25th Anniversary Clock, which set auction records for Fabergé, clocks, and silver. Following Christie’s, Nicholson became the American Curator of "Jewels of the Romanovs; Treasures from the Russian Imperial Court," a touring exhibition of works from five Russian lending institutions, including a selection of the Imperial Crown Jewels from the State Diamond Fund of the Russian Federation. By the end of the decade, Nicholson joined an online art advisory firm and later opened his own, Nicholson Art Advisory.

“I am excited to join the staff of Freeman’s, which has a long history within the international art marketplace and is committed to finding innovative ways of serving the needs of collectors in the 21st century,” said Nicholson.

In addition to his roles at Freeman’s, Nicholson is currently the chairman of the board of directors of the Merchant’s House Museum in New York City and serves on the collection committee of the Museum of Russian Icons in Clinton, MA. He is the recent co-author of Tatiana Romanov: Daughter of the Last Tsar: Diaries and Letters 1913-1918. Nicholson will divide his time between New York and Philadelphia.
