PHILADELPHIA, PA.- Freeman’s will present two back-to-back auctions, Art and Design and Luxe: Boutique Jewelry, that offer many opportunities for collecting and gifting this holiday season.

Art and Design, held on December 8 at 11am, is led by fine Tiffany Studios lighting from the Estate of Gabriele Lee, ironwork by celebrated Philadelphia metalworker Samuel Yellin, furniture by leading names of 20th-century design, including George Nakashima, Charles Eames, and Paul Evans, and paintings, works on paper, and prints and multiples from highly sought-after artists, from David Hockney and Claes Oldenburg to Takashi Murakami and Alex Katz.

The holiday edition of Freeman’s Luxe: Boutique Jewels on December 9 at 11am features works by leading names and houses, including Cartier, Piaget, Tiffany & Co., and Hermès. The sale presents a selection of chic holiday gift opportunities for yourself and loved ones: a handsome gold Patek Philippe pocket watch or an Eberhard & Co. wristwatch for the watch lover in your life, colored gemstones from tanzanite to aquamarine, and brooches—like a charming nephrite, diamond, and gold bonsai tree—that make a statement.
