Nick and Weston Thorn (left to right)

Litchfield County Auctions & Appraisals is Connecticut’s premier estate Auction House, featuring fine art, antique & modern furniture, silver, rugs, jewelry & couture, pottery, porcelain, glass, Asian art & antiques, antiquities, ethnographic arts and more. LCA’s 10,000 sq. ft. gallery is located on the main road, just a mile south of “The Green” in historic Litchfield, nestled in the beautiful hills of Litchfield County. Major sales are held 5 times per year presenting fresh-to-the-market property from Estates and Collections in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and beyond.

Growing out of Weston Thorn’s successful antiques business that began nearly 30 years ago, LCA held its first auction in 1994. Year by year, sales have grown from that first auction of just over one hundred thousand dollars to sales over a million dollars, and from lot counts in the low hundreds to sales featuring over 1000 lots. Many major collections have been sold over the years, including property from the collection of Mike Nichols & Diane Sawyer, the estate of Opera Diva Anna Moffo, the estate of celebrated photographer Horst P. Horst and from the estate of renowned collector Alice Lawrence, and many others.
