    The Gallery

     

    Rolleston is one of the world’s leading dealers of antique furniture and works of art, specialising in the fine and important objects of the late seventeenth, eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. A third-generation family business, we have been based at our gallery in London for over 50 years.

     

    Our clients are both new and well-established collectors from around the world, and we are proud of the role we play as trusted dealers and advisors to these. We are also proud to have sold items to many of the world’s leading museums and institutions.

     

    We exhibit annually at the The Winter Show in New York in January and Masterpiece London in June.

     

    The gallery is open from Monday to Friday 9:30 to 5.30 and at other times by appointment. 

     

     

     

     

     

     

  • A Rich Pedigree

    A Rich Pedigree

     

    Rolleston was founded by Marion Priestly Rolleston in 1955 when the firm traded under the name ‘The Antique Home’. Dealing only in the most authentic English furniture of the finest condition, design, colour and patina, the firm quickly became well-regarded for its dedication and work ethic, trustworthiness and integrity. 

     

    The company grew throughout the 1960s and 70s and in the early 80s began exhibiting at the prestigious Grosvenor House Art & Antiques Fair. Here the company was invited to join the strict English furniture vetting committee in which it came to play an integral role, exemplifying the firm’s expertise and standing within the trade. Here the company also consolidated and expanded its base of international clients.

     

    Rolleston has since continued to expand and is now one of the world’s leading dealers in English furniture and works of art, exhibiting annually at The Winter Show in New York and Masterpiece in London. A third-generation business, however, Rolleston remains close to its roots, committed to its founding ethos of working diligently to enhance its reputation and cultivate its international and domestic clients.

     

    We are very proud of our history and look forward to continuing to share our passion for the pieces we offer.

     

     

  • ESTABLISHING RELATIONSHIPS

    ESTABLISHING RELATIONSHIPS

     

    We value and are very proud of the close professional relationships we have with our clients. The experience of collaborating to form a superior collection of eighteenth-century English furniture is a special one, and a great journey. We are passionate about our field and take great pleasure in carefully building iconic collections that last a lifetime, and can be passed down from generation to generation.

     

    At the heart of every home and collection is our clients’ personality and taste, and we help make sure that these individual qualities are at the centre of every collection. As a third-generation family firm with over 200 years' collective experience and expertise, superb service and attention to detail are very important to us, and this is evident in each object we offer.
