About Us

Rue des Fontenelles was founded in a small rural town on the edge of the Vienne River and moving the business back to the UK we have continued our passion for French antiques, paintings and decorative objects.  We had originally intended to move south to Provence or the Provence Drome but in the end it was time to come home.

We decided to keep our French name and are now based in Chagford, Dartmoor.  The shop always well stocked with a mixture of French antiques, art and decorative objects. All of our items are personally chosen and we still regularly visit France to find quality antique furniture, art and decorative objects.  We still believe that French antiques give a room an original twist, and work well with traditional English antiques in both classic and modern interiors.

We love an eclectic mix  of woods, colour and art.  There is a good selection of oil paintings in stock - some by well recognised and listed artists - for most budgets. French and European paintings still offer value for money and are vibrant and decorative additions to a room.

All of our items are displayed on our website and can also be viewed on our dealer page at www.sellingantiques.co.uk - just type in Rue des Fontenelles.  All images on our site can now be expanded by clicking on the image and then on the box in the right hand corner.

We also stock a good range of classic reproduction lighting and decorative objects which work well with our antiques and also make excellent presents.  These items can be seen on our website. and in the shop. All of our antiques can be delivered across the UK and overseas and many of our smaller items can be posted, including paintings.  Please call the shop on 01647 231493 for more information.

If you are looking for a particular piece or have a large project we are happy to work with our clients to find individual pieces or a collection of French furniture.

Caroline Mason, founder and owner of Rue des Fontenelles has worked on several restoration projects and is  happy to offer advice on colour schemes and interiors.

The image shows  a 19th century French pastel and is typical of our range.  The pastel, which is now sold is in excellent condition for its age.
