Generations of Tradition

The Heldreich family has been involved with Fine Furniture for over 200 yearsWheathills has been a family run business for nearly 200 years and maintains a long standing tradition based on inherited skill and experience stretching back to the early 1800’s when Baron Theodore Otto Alexander Heldreich was employed, whilst a Napoleonic prisoner of war, as a natural varnish maker in Derbyshire.

Throughout the 19th century, Thomas and his sons expanded the association through painting, brass working and clock making, whilst later in the 20th century George, with the support of his sons, founded the antique furniture and restoration workshops. Later, one of his sons Harold, specialised in french polishing and furniture conservation thereby developing the rich blend of traditional services customers enjoy today.

Today, his son Nigel has kept true to the family tradition leading Kedleston Traditional French Polishers to become one of the region's most regarded antique furniture and period property interior restorers, supplying services to the discerning antique collector and those renovating period homes worldwide.
