Litchfield's September 30 auction in three sessions features Jewelry, 20th Century Art & Design and Fine Art & Antiques.
Two outstanding estate collections form the basis of the Antiques and Fine Art collections: Part one, from the Litchfield Estate of Tracy Griswold and property from the Greenwich Village townhouse of the Downey Estate, whose Connecticut property was sold with great enthusiasm in our October 2019 auction. The Griswold property includes American paintings, carpets, a flag, swords, mirrors, blanket chests and other fine Connecticut antiques. The Downey collection focused on predominantly English furniture of the 17th Century, and also included rugs, decorations and some complimentary furniture made by George Smith. Traditional Fine Art comes from two large gallery collections, a fourth generation gallery and the estate of lifelong gallery owners from Essex County, New Jersey, among others highlights.
