Welcome to Toronto’s newest site for a complete catalogue of auction services! Four Seasons Auctioneers brings a fresh approach – and a distinguished history – to the arts and antiquities marketplace here and internationally.
The launch of Four Seasons also represents a significant “first” in the Toronto business community: its parent company, Antique Reader Inc., a highly respected American auction house – in collaboration with China Bank (Beijing) Investment Group – established Four Seasons Auctioneers as the first company of its kind in the GTA to have the solid backing of Chinese investment.
Four Seasons inherits the superb reputation of its U.S. parent, Antique Reader, which realised phenomenal results in “under the hammer” sales in the last year. Four Seasons Auctioneers also profits from the expertise of an impressive group of consultants assembled by Thomas Wang, CEO of Beijing Investment Company. His team members include: The International Archaeological Institute of Physics Research (China); International Institute of Forensic Study of Ancient Ceramics, The China Federation Jewelry Inspection and Research Center and additional, equally distinguished authorities.
Antique Reader’s President and CEO, Kalu Wu, has further ensured the new company’s success by appointing Toronto’s own Alice Wan as the Director of Fine Asian Art. Ms. Wan brings decades of global experience and exhaustive knowledge of Asian art and antiques to the firm. Ms. Wan heads a team of experts dedicated to the highest level of customer support in sourcing and certifying superb acquisitions; guiding clients through the buying and selling processes; appraising their treasures, and, of course, directing live and online auctions designed to showcase each item to optimal advantage.
With its outstanding pedigree and strong financial backing, Four Seasons Auctioneers is positioning itself to become Toronto’s premier auction, appraisal, consignment and asset specialist, offering individuals and corporations unprecedented expertise in jewellery, Canadian and Asian art, decorative art, furniture, textiles and carpets contemporary art, Southeast Asian arts.
