An antique carved oak fire surround by gueret frer

UK HERITAGE
This fire surround was made by the cabinet-making firm Guéret Frères. The firm was founded in 1853 and continued in production until the end of the 19th century. From 1855 onward it exhibited regularly at the great international exhibitions and often won medals. They exhibited at the International Exhibitions of 1855, 1867 and 1878 specialising in all types of furniture in the traditional Louis XV and XVI styles. A finely carved cabinet by Guerét Fréres is in the permanent collection of the V&A, London (W. 17-1980).

Guéret Frères based their designs on revivals of 18th-century and earlier styles. The decoration of this fireplace follows the Louis XV style

Several of their drawings are kept in the permanent collection of the Musee des Arts decoratifs, Paris.

A little piece of our history:

History, telling the stories of the past and letting them live again in the future, is core to everything we do at UK Heritage. So let us also share with you a little piece of own history.

We've been buying and selling architectural heritage pieces since the grand old year of... 2006.  yes we may seem relatively young in the world of antiques, but thanks to our dedicated and experienced team our knowledge knows no bounds.

Our business was founded by Ben Couchman, a man dedicated to learning about the history of every piece he comes across. He knows a thing or two about architectural antiques, and can often be found scouring the UK and Europe to uncover decorative or functional architectural treasures that deserve their chance to shine again.

Our home in Herfordshire:

Our impressive rural site in Herefordshire is currently home to over 2000 antiques. Arranged around a courtyard, it includes an 18th Century barn as well as three large, modern warehouses. It only takes a quick walk around some of our dedicated showrooms to almost feel each piece jumping out at you, begging to share their stories and add to yours.

Our philosophy:

Sustainability and ethical responsibility are the buzzwords of today and while it's easy to say this is a priority, it is often a little more difficult to prove. However, our business model relies on both.

We don't buy or create new. We reuse, recycle and give architectural antiques that were once destined for landfill an opportunity to continue creating history. Everything is antique and unique. We also do not sell items that contain ivory or that are dangerous to health or the environment.

Who we work with:

In our time we've supplied a little piece of history to interior designers, architects, retailers and private clients across the world. Our list of previous customers is quite impressive too, having worked with Cambridge and Oxford Universities, Claridge's and Warner Brothers, to name just a few.
