Freeman’s has had great success with selling American antiques over the years, establishing auction records for a Fraktur with a verse from a hymn to the nightingale which sold for $366,750 to a painted, decorated and incised pine candlebox from the Esther Ludwig Estate. Our American Furniture, Folk & Decorative Arts department has had the privilege of bringing to auction such prestigious collections as the Historic Muhlenberg Property, Property Deaccessioned by the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association, Historic Lemon Hill, and Property from the Reed & Barton Archives.
