“With the Litchfield’s auction we wanted to make some of my mom’s favorite pieces accessible to a wider audience,” Joan’s daughter Melissa tells PEOPLE.
“Friends and fans alike can take a home a little ‘piece of Joan’ by purchasing the accessories and home items that were a part of her everyday life. There are tons of amazing jewelry lots and works of art, which you can begin bidding on for as low as $50.”
Also available are one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture, decorative art and silver from Rivers’ Connecticut country estate and her New York apartment.
“We’re honored to have a role in carrying out the wishes of Joan Rivers and her estate,” said Nick Thorn, president of Litchfield County Auctions.
“We expect to see many of Joan’s friends and neighbors on auction day and hope all of her fans will join us, as well, whether it is in person, online or over the phone.”
