All types of materials have been brought together, Bourgogne stone, Charente stone, marble stone and various marbles such as white statuary stone, Carrare marble, Cherry red marble, Breche d’Alep or Sarrancolin marbles…

Sculpture & Ornaments:

Just like in a museum, time seems to have stood still on objects in order to restore them intact: basins, fountains, bowls, tables and garden benches, statues, sculptures, wood paneling, chandeliers, vases and flame pots highlighting the splendor of places. The history behind the balustrades, steps, railings and park entrances can be traced back to the Gothic age and the XIX...

Firebacks & Fireplace Accessories:

Works from Masters, Fellows, Casters Tradesmen - fireplace plaques and other fireplace accessories such as fenders and andirons reflect a level of a mastered savoir-faire; rare, but always appreciated by a wide audience.


Flooring from times gone by, polished by the passing of the years, in oak, marble or terracotta in which the most recent are a hundred years old or so. ORIGINES - Samuel Roger offers a large selection of old paving (Abbey in Bourgogne or Charente stone, Ba de Provence fixed on a mortar screed…), terracotta flooring (tiles, floor tiles, parefeuilles tiles…) and a large range of floorboards (wide planks Louis XIII, floorboards Versailles). There are so many different types of ancestral flooring for majestic interiors.

Prestige pieces or just simple curiosity, each one carries with it a little bit of history. Sometimes they reflect other cultures evoking the memory of Parisian salons or great Universal Exhibitions, being the pretext for a voyage of discovery and a trip into the works of renowned artists.

We do not collect payment or hold such unless specifically agreed prior to purchase and then only as Agent do we hold funds, which are held by the DC Ltd until both parties have confirmed such can be released.  If such funds are held and an item is returned, release back to the client of such funds, will be subject to the Seller confirming the item has been returned according to their returns policy.  Items are not released to the Buyer until the agreed payment is received by the DC Ltd.  The DC Ltd is not responsible for any related bank charges, transfer fees, currency fluctuations or otherwise.  For more details on this facility, please contact owner Jane Walton at [email protected]

You have the right to return items purchased via the internet up to 14 days following receipt of the item to the specified delivery address. If you collect an item in person or arrange your own delivery, then this term starts immediataely you or your carrier collects the item (this is to avoid your own carrier sitting on the item for a long time before delivering it).


Always ask for an invoice from the Seller.  On the invoice you should have the date of the item, any provence, full description, including any restoration or damage.  It should state terms of payment and delivery and returns. It should also show the business name, business address, contact numbers, email address and VAT number if applicable.

You should ask for confirmation of your purchase by email so that you have written proof of the agreed price, any additional charges, eg delivery and if you are having the item delivered, ask how and who will be undertaking it and what the Sellers return policy is. 

Ask for email confirmation of what your responsibilities are should you wish to return an item, including re-packing, how you must confirm your desire to return the item, eg email or by telephone and be clear on the Seller's return policy.

The prices indicated for items on this site are correct at the time the item is listed, barring any error by the Seller.  However, the Euro and Dollar prices shown are for indication only and may vary as rates fluctuate and you may incur your own bank charges when making payment from abroad.


Some of our Dealers (Sellers) are based in Europe so you may need to qualify with them their specific purchase and returns policies.  However Distance Selling Regulations apply througout Europe as far as the DC Ltd is aware.

Please do not be concerned about the above statements.  They are there to help and protect both parties and should help to avoid any disputes by making things clear.  The owner of this site, Jane Walton, is always happy to help and assist where possible and clients are very welcome to contact Jane should they need advice or assistance.  Being a dealer herself for 16 years, she knows that most dealers are good, hardworking and professional people who understand the rules and how to be polite and helpful to clients at all times.  They can help you obtain shipping or transport quotes for example.  Never be worried about speaking to a Dealer and asking as many questions as you need to about an item, they wil be happy to help you. Please do remember though, that they will always be more receptive to clients who show them the same respect.
