Established in 1808, in the decade between the battles of Trafalgar and Waterloo, Frost&Reed is one of the oldest dealerships still in operation in Britain today. Throughout the intervening 200 years, the gallery has obviously undergone many directional changes, some intentional and strategic, and others completely involuntary and fortuitous. But the marque has survived through hot wars and cold wars, booms and depressions. As Chairman, Martyn Rose, observes “Frost & Reed was founded in 1808 and has flourished ever since precisely because it has consistently aspired to keep abreast of change in a notoriously fickle and volatile trading arena”.
