A Rich Pedigree
Rolleston was founded by Marion Priestly Rolleston in 1955, with the firm trading under the name ‘The Antique Home’ and dealing in 18th Century English furniture. The firm rapidly gained a reputation for being a dedicated and hard working business, only acquiring items for their authenticity, fine condition, design, and great colour and patina.
With this ethos in place the company grew and by the mid 70s had become well known within the Art & Antiques world, not just for the quality of its English Furniture and Works of Art, but its high level of trustworthiness and integrity. By the early 80s the company had begun exhibiting at the Grosvenor House Art & Antiques fair, where the company played an integral part in the strict English antique furniture vetting committee. Here the company began to consolidate and expand its international clientele.
Today, Rolleston is a third generation of 18th Century English Furniture and Works of Art dealers, and while the core ethos that built the business remains paramount, the company continues to work diligently to enhance its reputation and cultivate its international and domestic clients.
We are very proud of our rich pedigree and look forward to continuing to share our passion and joy for the pieces we offer.
We value 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 many decades of experience and expertise, superb service and attention to detail are of paramount importance to us.
