Litchfield Auctions is New England’s favorite auction house, featuring property from celebrity estates, artist’s estates, and important private estates and collections. Property comes from throughout New England, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and further afield.
From our spacious auction rooms in the historic town of Litchfield, nestled in the beautiful hills of Northwestern, CT, we offer sales of Fine Art, Asian Arts, Jewelry, Antique & Modern Furniture & Decorations, Rare Books, Carpets, Silver, Antiquities, Ethnographic Arts and more. With roots tracing back to ‘Weston Thorn Antiques’ of the 1980’s, we held our first auction in 1994 and have been growing ever since. Fine Art highlights include the re-discovery of Paul Gauguin’s ‘Fleur D’ete Dans Une Goblet’, 1885 and in the Asian department, the discovery of ‘Oiseaux Dans Les Nids’ 1951 by the Chinese/French artist Zao Wou-ki. Jewelry highlights include the sale of an important Kashmir sapphire ring.
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.
