Explore the fine art, antiques, decorative arts, jewellery, silver and rare books currently on offer at two of the world’s oldest auction houses. Freeman’s, America’s oldest auctioneers, and Lyon & Turnbull, the oldest in Scotland, have joined forces to present an auction catalogue App that offers a world of art at your fingertips.
This complimentary app allows users to access a range of auction catalogues, and receive instant updates when new catalogues become available. Browse previous and upcoming auctions in the online App before downloading the auction catalogue of your choice to discover detailed information about individual lots alongside pinch-and-zoom images.
Both Freeman’s and Lyon & Turnbull hold an esteemed place in auction history. Freeman’s is not only America’s oldest auction house, having been established in 1805, but was also one of the country’s first family owned businesses. Lyon & Turnbull are proud to be one of the longest established fine art and antiques auction houses in the United Kingdom and have been operating since 1826. Since the formation of their marketing alliance in 2000, the two auction houses have had their hands across the ocean, combining passion, knowledge and expertise in jewellery, fine art, furniture, and antiques to expand their reach into the international markets.
