LITCHFIELD COUNTY AUCTIONS & APPRAISALS is Connecticut’s Premier Estate Auction House, serving Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and beyond. Specializing in Estate Property, we hold six sales per year featuring: Modern Art & Design, Asian Art & Antiques, Silver, Jewelry & Couture, Antiquities, American & European Fine Art, European Antiques, Americana, Antique Weapons & Firearms, Oriental Carpets, Pottery, Porcelain, Glass, Books, Ethnographic Arts and more. In addition to expertise & reputation, what distinguishes Litchfield County Auctions from all other auction houses is the sales method by which LCA reaches the widest range of local, regional, national and international buyers and therefore attains 30% higher prices than traditional auctioneers, while simultaneously handling nearly everything in an estate – not just the top few items– and doing so economically.

LCA’s success is founded on the satisfaction of thousands of consignors over the years, because, in addition to achieving the strongest prices for clients’ property, LCA provides personal service in the difficult task of settling an estate. As an early consignor once wrote in a kind letter: “What a team… the ‘Weston Thorn Experience,’ has made the delicate situation of disposing of mom’s treasures quite bearable… We certainly were lucky to find someone as knowledgeable and considerate as you are to help us at a difficult time….” LCA has grown significantly since that letter was written. Our sales are 4 times larger and more valuable, our staff and gallery space have also quadrupled and we now regularly sell single items for more than $100,000. However, as we grow, we retain the qualities which inspired that early letter: respect for our clients and their property, an endless excitement for discovering all of the treasures within a collection and attention to the myriad little details tempered by a healthy sense of the bigger picture of settling an estate.
