Back in 1972 in the ancient South Devon stannary town of Ashburton, a showroom specialising in antique fireplaces opened that went by the name of Ashburton Marbles. News of the ever-changing, extensive and remarkable range spread and fifteen years later, the business outgrew their premises, moved to Great Hall in North Street and so began Adrian Ager.
Fantastic fireplaces of all kinds are still here, from the extraordinary to the elegant, along with a vast array of antique treasures. From contemporary to antique furniture, mirrors and lighting of every kind, along with a considerable range of garden furniture, statuary and fountains, Adrian Ager offers a premier collection along with first class service, with, where possible, nationwide delivery.
