About Us

Mallett was established in 1865 in Bath and over the course of 150 years of trading has established itself as one of the world’s foremost brands for fine and decorative arts, specialising in the highest quality English and continental furniture.

Alongside decorative arts Mallett has also acquired the name for offering 18th & 19th century pictures synonymous with the country house look. Mallett established the style of presenting art and antiques in room settings rather than traditional gallery displays.

Having been pioneers in retailing antiques from prestigious locations in London’s Mayfair and New York the creation of a suite of rooms at Donnington Priory, an historic Grade II listed country house in Berkshire, will perpetuate this tradition. Mallett takes a modern and accessible approach, with the convenience of online trading supported by exhibitions in our own galleries and at international art fairs.

Mallett will continue to present fine and decorative arts with charm and style enticing today’s buyers looking to achieve a historical country house look. The association with Dreweatts auctioneers provides the unique opportunity to offer vendors the most appropriate route to market whilst providing buyers with a wide choice of predominantly privately sourced high quality works with exceptional provenance.

Alongside the core antique inventory Mallett will also stage regular exhibitions of traditional and contemporary art and design. These exhibitions will be designed with broad appeal and across a wide range of styles and disciplines.
