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.

Unusual Sideboard by Gordon Russell of Broadway.

We recently have been very pleased to have bought, and sold, two examples of the exceedingly rare, and sought-after, Helix Sideboard by Gordon Russell - this sideboard is also by Gordon Russell (label to rear) but from the late 1950s/60s: we are still researching the model name and age, and will post when available.

Home & Stock Page. Black Apple Ice Bucket Mid

Black Apple Ice Bucket.

Very unusual colour for this plastic icebucket. There were three major French manufacturers of plastic items such as this in the 1960s and 1970s, and they were Arcopal, Veropam and SOMM. We believe this to be by one of the two latter, as the quality of their work is better. We have also discovered that this black and gold colourway is referred to as "The Holy Grail" for collectors! The icebucket is in very good condition and measures 25cm high X 22cm deep. JUST SOLD.
