Notable works from the historic Hedgerow Theatre by renowned American artist and woodworker Wharton Esherick will come to auction for the first time on March 31 in Philadelphia.  Representing decades of creative exchange between the master woodworker and the Theatre, this significant collection leads Freeman’s forthcoming Design auction. The collection—which includes eight of Esherick’s earliest “Hammer-Handle” chairs and the important “Thunder Table” from 1929—celebrates Esherick’s lengthy and seminal relationship with the Theatre and demonstrates its considerable influence on his evolution as an artist and craftsman. Freeman’s is honored to present these exemplary pieces of Pennsylvania’s cultural history at auction. Proceeds from the sale
