Litchfield Auctions is honored to offer Selections from the Collection of Peter Tillou. Peter has enjoyed wide renown across the United States and Internationally over his seventy-year career as the consummate dealer-collector. While in college in 1956, Peter was already advertising a pair of fine antique flintlock pistols. By 1960, now a resident of historic Litchfield Connecticut, he was cited by the New York Times as a dealer in "great rarities." With later residences and shops in London, Manhattan, Sun Valley Idaho, and Sanibel Island Florida, Peter continued to consider Litchfield his home. By 2013, Peter was recognized by the Antiques Dealers of America with its highest honor, its Award of Merit,"in recognition of his extensive contributions to the fields of fine art, American decorative arts and antiques." More recently, a cover story in The Antiques and the Arts Weekly traced "the arc of Tillou’s long career"
Litchfield Auctions is delighted to highlight pieces chosen by Peter for its October 2019 auction.
