A Rich Pedigree
The Company was founded in 1955 by Marion Priestly Rolleston and began trading under the name of the ‘Antique Home’ dealing in 17th 18th & 19th 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 their English Furniture, but also for their high level of trust and integrity. By the early 80s the company had began 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 are a third generation of Antique Furniture and Works of Art Dealers, and while maintaining the core ethos that built the business remaining paramount; the company continues to work diligently to enhance its reputation and cultivate its international and domestic clients.
The gallery values, and is very proud of the close professional relationships we have with our clients. The experience of collaborating to form a superior Collection of 18th Century English Furniture is a special one, and a great journey. We are passionate about our field and take great pleasure in methodically building iconic collections that last a life time, 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 of collective expertise and experience; superb service, and attention to detail is very important to us, and this is evident in the item we offer.
