Founded in 1868 as a small trading company, Ritchies launched as an auction house in 1967. Since then, Ritchies has become Canada’s leading auctioneer of fine Canadian art, fine international art, decorative art, jewellery, rare wine, and other personal property. In 2011 the Ritchies name was purchased and re-invented as a world-class auctioneer of fine gems and jewellery, truly putting Toronto on the international stage. The new Ritchies team is proud of the incredible feats achieved by Ritchies Inc. at auction, and intends to continue building upon those accolades and achievements.
With offices in Toronto, New York and Hong Kong, we offer over 20 auctions per year to a broad national and international market. Our buyers include leading collectors, dealers, designers, and curators, in addition to discerning private individuals who have come to trust our expertise, experience and in-depth market knowledge.
