ANTIQUES IN TETBURY

Stephen & Ines Muir, each now with over thirty five years experience in sourcing, buying and selling quality antiques, had their major business based in London. We have been based in the well-known ANTIQUES TOWN of TETBURY in the glorious COTSWOLDS for over ten years now, and have celebrated over eight years in our own shop at 58 Long Street, Tetbury, Gloucestershire, GL8 8AQ, which showcases our theme of mixing good contemporary design with selected pieces from the 20th Century Antiques, French Decorative Antiques, Retro, and sometimes even, the 19th Century, in fact, Antiques for Modern Interiors.
Our phone number in the shop is +44(0)1666504522, and mobile number is +44(0)7836758416.
When we are on a buying trip, we close the shop, so if you are planning a visit to see us specifically, it is best to contact us in advance to make sure we are here. We have two email addresses:- enquiries@tetburyantiques.com(please use our "Contact Form" page) or stephen.muir4@btinternet.com (which accepts attachments) to use this Facebook Page. The rest of the time, the shop is open every day, and our hours are 10.00-17.30 from monday to saturday, and 11.00-17.30 on sunday, and at other times, by appointment.

Tetbury now has become known world-wide since The Prince of Wales opened his Highgrove Shop in this iconic Cotswolds, Gloucestershire town in April 2008.
We specialise in more Modern, retro, Antiques and normally,nothing older than Art Deco, but right up-to-date if the style and quality is good. Our major buying area is France, where we buy Decorative and Modern,20th Century pieces, but we source in Belgium & Holland as well. We spend a minimum of ten days per month abroad buying Antiques for our Tetbury operation, visiting specialised antique markets, Brocantes, and private sources of supply of the style and quality of articles which we like, and which our wide range of customers, both trade and private, love to buy. When we can find them, we will buy good pieces of furniture designed by, for example, CHARLOTTE PERRIAND, CHARLES & RAY EAMES, MART STAM, any BAUHAUS designer, ROBIN & LUCIENNE DAY, MARCEL BREUER, HANS OLSEN, MARIO BELLINI, as well as PIEFF, MERROW ASSOCIATES or sometimes, DE SEDE, or anything now called Retro Antiques. We also have a love for such materials as Linen and Hemp(we always have a good selection of French sheets, some with hand-embroidered initials, in stock), Gilt-Bronze, Bakelite, Palm-Wood, Sheet Copper, Cast-Iron, Perspex, Lucite, Mirror, chrome and nickel plate and leather & suede. We are also attracted to such finishes as Faux-Marbre, Trompe L'Oeil, Crackle-Glaze, Grisaille and Limed wood.Please look at ALL our pages to get a good idea of our style and to see if you can find something you really, really want.




Home & Stock Page. Thanet Rocking Chair

Bentwood Rocking Chair, probably by Thonet



Rather different from our usual style is this lovely Bentwood Rocking Chair. It has no Manufacturs' Marks, but the design is exactly identical to those of Thonet. It is photographed before we have had it re-polished, but, as you can see, it is in sound condition, including all the rattan caning. It measures 55cm wide X 60cm deep X 90cm high. JUST SOLD.

Home & Stock Page. Eze Monserie Plate front

Pottery Display Plate by Eze Monserie.

NEW STOCK for MAY 2017.
Most unusual multi-colour glazed pottery plate from Eze Monserie in the South of France. This is, therefore, French and from the 1950s. The factories in this area, such as Vallauris, produced some very inventive, and avant garde, designs at that period, and we feel this plate shows influences from the works of Picasso. Signed on the reverse. The plate is in very good condition, and measures 40cm diameter, and is priced at £185.

White Wrought Iron Serving Table after Mathieu Mategot.


An unusual, but very practical, design of Serving Table in white painted wrought iron, with circular pierced metal top, very much in the style of Mathieu Mategot.

Home & Stock Page. Two Durlston table mirrors left

Two Dressing Mirrors by Durlston Designs.

Home & Stock Page. Round Two-Tier Trolley Mid Down

Round Two-Tier Chrome Trolley.

Very practical, and attractive, round Serving Trolley in chrome, with two circular smoked glass shelves.

Home & Stock Page. Coffee Table Guy Lefevre

Coffee Table by Guy Lefevre, probably for Maison Jansen.

NEW STOCK for AUGUST 2017.
Super-chic design of Coffee Table by Guy Lefevre, probably for Maison Jansen. The Table has a bronzed, square-section frame, with small "pillars" which support the top, and give the impression it is floating. The top is in veneer, which is either Loupe de Thuya or Loupe D'Orme, and the veneers are carefully book-matched. Overall, a very chic and stylish Table, from the 1970s, and in very good condition. It measures 120cm Long X 60cm wide X 36cm high, and is priced at £750.

Home & Stock Page. Burr Maple & Chrome Console Table Front

Burr Maple & Chrome Console Table.


Super design, and very chic! This burr maple Console Table has two hidden frieze drawers, and stands on four large-diameter chromed tube legs. Unfortunately, no Designer's mark, and we are uncertain of its origins - there are echoes of Pieff in the design & size of the legs, and they certainly used burr maple veneer, notably on examples of their Mandarin Sideboard, but other than that - no clues. However, we lean to the idea that it may be Italian, and certainly Continental, as all the dimensions are exact in centimetres! It measures 120cm wide X 40cm deep X 80cm high. Price is £585.
