Freeman's

In 1805 Tristram B. Freeman opened an auction house with the desire to “cherish the arts in the new world.” Over 200 years later, Freeman’s is still committed to exceptional art and exceptional people. We believe in a unique standard of one-on-one service, where people are just as important as their possessions. As America’s oldest auction house, we have spent decades building relationships with a loyal, diverse and passionate group of collectors in Philadelphia and beyond.

Freeman’s holds more than 25 auctions a year in the following categories: 20th Century Design; American Art & Pennsylvania Impressionists; American Furniture, Folk & Decorative Arts; Asian Arts; Books, Maps & Manuscripts; English & Continental Furniture, Silver & Decorative Arts; European Art & Old Masters; Jewelry & Watches; Modern & Contemporary Art.
