Provenance: Ira McKissick Koger
Estate of Wade Lee & Celeste Koger Hampton

Other Notes: Mrs. Celeste Koger Hampton (1939-1998) and her husband Wade Lee Hampton (1928-2023) were the daughter and son-in-law of Ira McKissick Koger (1912-2004). Charleston-born Mr. Koger pursued many endeavors in life, but his fortune was made in real estate development. His suburban office park concept made him a multi-millionaire.

Mr. Ira Koger is widely recognized for his patronage, philanthropy, and as an arts champion. He contributed millions to the University of South Carolina's performing arts center, the Koger Center For The Arts, which is named to honor him and his wife Nancy.

Ira and Nancy personally collected paintings, furniture, and ceramics. Some of these pieces inherited by Celeste and Wade Hampton are offered in this sale.
