2002: Massive Japanese Meji Period Silver Wire Cloisonne Vase
Born in Preston, England in 1965, I began my training at the young age of eleven in the family's antiques business attending fairs and markets up and down the country. With a keen eye and an inquiring mind, my interests grew over the years and I soon became an established Art & Antiques dealer and collector.
In the early 1990s I became interested in Asian art and started collecting and dealing. Since this time I have joined operations with one of Canada’s premier Antiques and Art dealers Charles Cowperthwaite. Charles has dominated the art and antiques business within Canada for decades and brings a substantial amount of knowledge and invaluable experience. Together we have upwards of 60 years’ experience is all areas of antiques and art collecting. We have been involved with some of the most important collections and works of art within North America during this time.
For the past 35 years I have been living and working in Toronto. Throughout this time, we have built a substantial international client base. We specialize in fine Asian works of art, silver, Canadian and International art , porcelain, Glass, fine jewelry, timepieces, etc. Along with my associates we have a vast knowledge and expertise and can cover practically every field, ancient to modern, in the wonderful world of art, antiques and modern design.
For important highly valued works of art we can both purchase and broker to our clients. We can achieve top prices for such examples with less commissions paid, and far less time involved compared to dealing with galleries or auction houses. If you would like an honest and courteous consultation, please call or email. We look forward to meeting you.
