Freeman's announces highlights from the Collector's Sale
Freeman’s will include more than 30 Hirschfield works in the sale, including drawings of the cast of “Friends,” jazz age dancer Josephine Baker, Ringo Starr, Bette Davis, Clint Eastwood, and two self-portraits. Each of the prints comes framed and ready to hang on your wall.


PHILADELPHIA, PA.- On Wednesday, August 9 at 10am, Freeman’s will present The Collector’s Sale. With more than 400 lots spanning the breadth and depth of almost every specialist department, the sale offers something for everyone and for every budget.

The sale will be of particular interest for the budding community of young collectors developing in Philadelphia. The city was recently named by the real estate website, Trulia, as the best place for millennials, as the vibrant age group were most likely to be homeowners here than elsewhere in the country. With a trend of new and affordable housing, buying at auction allows one to own a unique piece of furniture or décor, imbued with history and timeless style for not much more—and in many cases, less—than the cost of an item from the ubiquitous Scandinavian flat-packed home store. Many of the items in the sale have estimates below $1,000. For those needing to furnish and decorate new home, The Collector’s Sale 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.

Illustrator and caricaturist Al Hirschfeld was a longtime staple on the pages of The New York Times and New York Magazine, among various publications. His classic black ink drawings, made with a crow’s quill, of celebrities and Broadway stars have become synonymous with his name.

Freeman’s will include more than 30 Hirschfield works in the sale, including drawings of the cast of “Friends,” jazz age dancer Josephine Baker, Ringo Starr, Bette Davis, Clint Eastwood, and two self-portraits. Each of the prints comes framed and ready to hang on your wall.

Design enthusiasts will enjoy a selection of pieces by some of the biggest names in mid-century modern furniture, including Harry Bertoia, Eero Saarinen , Florence Knoll, and Hans Wegner, whose “wishbone” chairs have been imitated but never duplicated. The sale includes a Saarinen “Tulip” dining table and four matching chairs, as well as a side table. The iconic fluted shape of the enameled aluminum defined design in the 1970s, and each of the pieces in The Collectors Sale can be purchased for significantly less than buying a new production model today.

With close to 100 items from our Asian Arts department, including a massive Chinese celadon jade mountain, and a variety of Chinese porcelain, hardstone, and jadeite vases, your mantelpiece will never look bare. The sale also includes decorative silver items, such as ornate silver serving trays and tea services, to elevate your next book club meeting or weekend brunch.

Whether your style is traditional, mid-century modern, art deco, Victorian, French provincial, or an eclectic mix of everything, The Collectors Sale has the décor you are looking for. The exhibition will open with a preview party on Friday, August 4th from 6:00-8:00pm, to coincide with First Friday.
