Litchfield Auctions is Connecticut’s premier estate auction gallery, featuring Paintings, Sculpture, Prints, Asian Arts, Jewelry, Antique & Modern Furniture, Silver, Carpets, Porcelain & Glass, Antiquities, Books and more. From our spacious auction rooms in the historic town of Litchfield, nestled in the beautiful hills of northwestern Connecticut, we present fresh-to-the-market property from local estates and collections in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and beyond.

Litchfield’s roots trace back to ‘Weston Thorn Antiques’, a beloved antique shop in Bantam CT, owned by our founder Weston Thorn. Prior to opening his antiques shop, Weston had been director of Sotheby’s PB-84, and infused that knowledge and level of integrity into the foundation of Litchfield Auctions. We held our first auction in 1994 and have been serving consignors and collectors ever since.

Having handled thousands of fine private estates and collections over the years, we have also had the privilege to work with numerous celebrities and prominent estates.  The estate of Joan Rivers, sold in collaboration with Christie’s, was a riotous summer sale in which nearly every lot sold. Other famous collections include Mike Nichols & Diane Sawyer, Bruce Willis, Lynn Redgrave, Susan Baransky, Frank & Jo Sullivan Loesser, the estate of Pulitzer Prize winning author Philip Roth, and others.

We are always looking for fantastic estates and collections to bring to auction.
