Hauge Collection

Described by former Freer Gallery of Art director Harold Stern as "without doubt one of the finest private collections in the world", foreign service brothers, Victor and Osborne Hauge, together with their wives Takako and Gratia, assembled a collection of Persian, Japanese, Chinese, and Southeast Asian art over two decades while stationed overseas in the 50's and 60's.  Over time, much of their collection was donated to the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery at the Smithsonian Institute the balance was inherited by descent in 2016.   Sands of Time is proud to present a selection of superb Near Eastern objects from the Hauge collection.
