Freeman’s to auction handbags, luxury accessories, Oct. 28
PHILADELPHIA— On Thursday, October 28, Freeman’s presents a Fine Jewelry and Luxury Accessories auction featuring 74 lots of jewelry, handbags, and fine accessories. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.
The auction’s highlight is a shiny black Crocodile Porosus Hermes Birkin 35 bag, estimated at $25,000-$40,000. In excellent condition and constructed of the most exotic material offered by Hermes, this handbag is a must-have addition for any serious handbag collector.
Confirming Freeman’s premier place in presenting signed works of jewelry by leading houses and designers is an eye-catching Cartier diamond, turquoise, and gold brooch with matching ear clips, estimated at $25,000-$35,000.
Equally stunning is an elegant diamond and gold Van Cleef & Arpels bracelet, estimated at $40,000-$60,000, and an opal, diamond, and gold Tiffany & Co. pendant, estimated at $20,000-$30,000.
The Fine Jewelry and Luxury Accessories auction continues to be a destination auction for timeless classics, such as the diamond solitaire ring. Two highlight diamond solitaires include an emerald-cut diamond, estimated at $20,000-$30,000, and a striking pear-shaped diamond, estimated at $10,000-$15,000. Many of these classic works are both showstopping statement pieces and suitable for everyday wear.
Two highlights fit more for display than wear include an unusual and rare Halberstadt gold, diamond and synthetic gemstone model train set, estimated at $8,000-$12,000. Carrying a cargo of brightly hued gemstones, this miniature model is a charming addition to a jewel-lover’s collection.
Another piece, a Faberge gold-and-sapphire case, was constructed circa 1890 and retains contemporary appeal with its sapphire clover accents and understated hammered gold exterior. It is estimated at $7,000-$9,000.
