  • For socialites and successful, busy women, the advice andassistance of the late Janet Brown on matters of fashion and stylewas invaluable. From her small, white-walled boutique in theunlikely town of Port Washington on Long Island, New York, shestyled women from all ports of call including London, Paris,South America, New York, Greenwich and Long Island, to name afew, with a unique talent and vision that combined classic design,elegance, premier quality, and avant-garde taste. Ms. Brownunderstood the provenance of her customers as well as theirworld and inspired them to make something of themselves andalways to be ahead of the game.

    As a New York tastemaker, her clients relied on her for anintroduction to the most current and influential European couturedesigners like Jil Sander, Miuccia Prada, and Loro Piana beforethey were ever accessible in the United States, let aloneManhattans most prestigious, high-profile stores. Ms. Brownbelieved in her sense of style and abided by her basic rule of onlybuying premium quality merchandise that exuded understatedelegance. Following her death at 59 in March 2007, hereponymous shop closed that December after almost a quarter-century of profoundly influencing the taste and fashionsensibilities of her devotees.

    Above all, she was selling the taste of Janet Brown, and that taste had its origins in her native Philadelphia. Whilestill a student at Temple University, she had the good fortune to work with Nan Duskin at her elegant store on the1700 block of Walnut Street. Her employment there served her well when she moved to New York and openedher shop in 1983, just in time to make her unique retail operation a triumph, as independent designer boutiqueswere disappearing because popular, couture designers were establishing their own shops, and department storeswere in a flurry of expansion.

    Browns vision to transpose the ordinary into the extraordinary made her a hugely successful business womanand she became the most elite in the retail womens fashion industry. In her private life, these attributes wereevident as well and are reflected in her furniture and silver featured in the Fine American Furniture, Silver,Decorative and Folk Arts Sale. Janet Browns taste is reflected in a striking sideboard from Gilbert Rohde, agraceful Gazelle chair by Dan Johnson, a unique center table by Johan Tapp, and a walnut Klismos chair byT.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings.

    Freemans will be offering many more items from Janet Browns tasteful collection over the course of our springand fall 2012 auction seasons. The May 12th Modern & Contemporary Art auction will include an outstandingsuite of Brice Marden prints, a rare woodcut by Donald Judd along with twenty other outstanding examples byAmerican and European artists of the 20th century. Additional works will be offered in the May 22nd Fine Englishand Continental Furniture and Decorative Arts Auction, the July 13th Estate sale, the September Fine Asian artssale and the October Fine Photography sale.

  • Upon her passing late last year inWashington D.C., at 96, Virginia H. Knauerhad received nine honorary doctorates andcountless civic and industry awards for hertireless work as a public servant on behalf ofthe American consumer. Mrs. Knaueradvised three Presidents, Nixon, Ford andReagan acting as a pipeline to thePresident for consumers, while she directedthe Office of Consumer Affairs. Hernumerous and wide-rangingaccomplishments had a lasting impact onAmerican life.

    Above all, her goal was to educate andempower the consumer and, mostimportantly, she provided businesses ablueprint for success through improvedcustomer service.

    An enduring part of her educational mission is the Federal Citizen Information Center which today distributes free or low-costconsumer publications. By 1981, it was mailing out 26 million pamphlets annually.

    Mrs. Knauer, born Virginia Harrington Wright in Philadelphia in 1915, once told The Washington Post in 1970, Ive been afeminist for 20 years and Im all for advancing women in public office. She married Wilhelm F. Knauer in 1940, had twochildren, and became involved in politics while working on Dwight Eisenhowers 1952 presidential campaign. In 1959 shebecame the first Republican woman elected to Philadelphias City Council Philadelphias City Council before headingPennsylvanias new Bureau for Consumer Protection just prior to her appointment by Nixon to the Consumer Affairs post in1969.

    Of course, Virginia H. Knauer is remembered for her distinguished career as a nationally renowned public advocate, yet herlink to Philadelphia and art is particularly strong. She earned degrees in art from the University of Pennsylvania and thePennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

Furniture historian,Alan Miller, has identified Martin Jugiez as thecarver of this dressing table. In his experience,the small scale and oval form of the shell andextraordinary tendril appliques on the centraldrawer are without cognate and perhaps dueto the small size of the drawer. Miller suggeststhat Jugiez was reaching for a vocabularyreflected more in his architectural work than inhis customary furniture work. One may look atthe organ case at St. Peters Church (1763) inPhiladelphia by Jugiez and Nicholas Bernardfor related vocabulary.$80,000-120,000
