Russian Works of Art

Freeman’s Russian Works of Art Department have established an international reputation for our sales in the field, which include Russian silver, porcelain, jewelry, objets de vertu, and in particular works by the renowned court jeweler Fabergé.  Freeman’s is pleased to work with dedicated collectors and consignors in this exciting and diverse area.

Freeman’s expertise in this sector of the art market is essential for the successful sale of Russian Imperial porcelains and fine, gold, silver, niello, and enamel work by Russian makers including Fabergé, Bolin, Hahn, Khlebnikov, Ovchinnikov, Semenova, and Ruckert.  Freeman’s also sells icons from the Orthodox world and ephemera of Russian imperial interest.
