Weschler's Auctioneers

Conveniently located in Penn Quarter, Weschler's holds weekly auctions. The Weschler family has been auctioning and appraising goods in DC for over 120 years. Their specialty areas include furniture, artwork, silver, and books. Auction items vary in quality and type, but on our visits we've noticed mostly traditional furniture and artwork in decent condition. More info and photos below the jump...
