Weschler’s Auctioneers & Appraisers, LLC

40 West Gude Drive, Suite 100




As a venerable, privately-owned institution, Weschler’s has been serving the auction and appraisal needs of Maryland, D.C. and Virginia since 1890.

In 2017, after over 125 years in D.C., Weschler’s moved to a new space in Rockville, boasting two expansive ground-floor galleries and ample free parking. The company is operated by Bill Weschler, Adam Weschler’s great grandson; his son and daughter, Mark and Karen Weschler; and cousins Tom and Leonard Weschler.

As a fourth- and fifth-generation family owned and operated auction and appraisal business, Weschler’s continues to provide customers with a reliable and transparent consignment experience, tailored to the needs of each estate or individual. Appraisers bring a combined experience of over 100 years to the appraisal and auction process, guiding their clients with a wide range of expertise in the specialty areas of antiques, fine art, decorative arts and jewelry. In addition to providing complimentary verbal estimates of auction value, the Weschler family of appraisers can provide written appraisals for estate tax and planning, insurance, charitable contribution and other purposes.

Over the years, Weschler’s has worked with well-known institutions, families and estates like the Daughters of the American Revolution, National Portrait Gallery, and the estates of Marjorie Merriweather Post and Katharine Graham, to name a few.

Weschler’s holds quarterly high-end Capital Collection auctions each season, featuring European and American furniture, paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, jewelry, 20th Century decorative arts, rugs and tapestries. Bi-monthly and weekly auctions include reproduction furniture, period pieces, rugs, artwork, silver, jewelry, collectibles, books and general household goods.
