The company was founded in 1955 by Marion Priestly Rolleston and began trading under the name of the ‘Antique Home’ dealing in English furniture from the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. 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 only for the quality of its stock, 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 antique furniture and works of art dealers, and while maintaining the core ethos that built the business, the company continues to work 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.
