On Tuesday, May 7th, Salmagundi played host to a performance by the New York Mandolin Orchestra under the direction of conductor Jeffrey Ellenberger.

Now in its 89th season, the New York Mandolin Orchestra, founded in 1924, is a community based group of volunteer musicians from many countries and all walks of life who come together to share a passion for their music, which ranges from Bach to the Beatles and Pachelbel to Cole Porter.

Taking a cue from The Antiques Roadshow, Salmagundi and Freeman’s Auctioneers & Appraisers co-hosted Appraisal Day as an exciting conclusion to Collector’s Week. Freeman’s Vice Chair and specialist on fine paintings and sculpture (and Salmagundian), Alasdair Nichols was joined by colleagues David Bloom (Freeman’s Vice President and specialist on rare books, manuscripts and ephemera) and Madeline Corcoran McCauley (specialist on jewelry and watches).

Attendees were encouraged to search their walls, attics and basements for items that could potentially be worth a fortune at auction. Modest appraisal fees ($25 for 1 item, $35 for 2) were donated to the Gallery Renovation Campaign.

Mr. Nichols and Mr. Bloom have made appearances on The Antiques Roadshow and both have served as judges for the SCNY Annual Members’ Exhibition.

Since 1805, Freeman’s has played an exemplary role as Philadelphia’s leading appraisers and auctioneers. As America’s oldest auction house, Freeman’s has a unique history. It continues to preserve its family business and traditions and is adapting to maintain its position in today’s thriving art market.
