Our new treasures:

Sideboard chest in oak – Louis XV – 18ᵗʰ century – South West France – [ME070]

Sideboard chest in oak – Louis XV – 18ᵗʰ century – South West France Astonishing trompe-l’oeil fantasy on this little sideboard which seems to have two drawers even though it opens on the top like a chest. Another daring mix of genres: made in the 18th century by a traveling furniture carpenter, from beautiful oak…

Small walnut sideboard – Louis XIV – 17ᵗʰ century – Périgord – [ME069]

Small walnut sideboard – Louis XIV – 17ᵗʰ century – Périgord Fashioned in the 17ᵗʰ century in beautiful walnut planks, the noble wood of the time cultivated in the illustrious walnut groves of Périgord, this sideboard immediately surprises with its completely unusual cozy dimensions.

Apothecary mortar in marble – late 18th century – France – [ME068]

Apothecary mortar in marble – late 18th century – France This frustoconical mortar was sculpted in a block of veined white marble, then patiently polished by hand, to obtain an impeccable softness to the touch and an irreproachable regularity of shapes. That of the tank hollowed out in the shape of a “cul de poule”…

Two oil jugs – late 18th century early 19th century – Lot Valley, Quercy – [PA062] [PA063]

Two oil jugs – late 18th century early 19th century – Lot Valley, Quercy We recognize in the roundness of these jugs an exuberant and sensual inspiration specific to the ancient Quercy potters’ centers. Several clues seem to indicate that these two jugs come from the same workshop and probably from the same hand. The…

Two water jugs – 19th century – Lot Valley – [PA058] [PA059]

Two water jugs – 19th century – Lot Valley Also called head jugs, because they were carried on the head by women who went to fetch water, these two water jugs were turned in the Lot Valley in the 19th century. Imagine women fetching water from the village well or fountain, to meet all the…

Cherry wood farm table – 19th century – Périgord – [MP024]

Cherry wood farm table – 19th century – Périgord Close your eyes and imagine … A soft light, that of the flames of the cantou from which escapes the sweet aroma of bacon soup, the familiar voices where the Occitan accent sings, the young wine which refreshes us in glasses darkened by time … You…

In the convivial atmosphere of our salesroom gallery “Aux-Rois-Louis” in the heart of the Périgord Noir (only a stone’s throw from the famous Lascaux Cave), we are proud to present a splendid array of period pottery and, in all shapes and sizes, a large collection of authentic classical or rare antique furniture made from a wide range of fine wood species. A wealth of veritable chefs-d’œuvre from the different regions of France.

Aux-Rois-Louis: Down through the ages

The “Aux-Rois-Louis” Salesroom Gallery reveals a whole page of our History: the emergence of a new way of life in Provincial France, generated by the splendour introduced into the court of Louis XIV (Louis the Great), the famous Sun King, in the 17ᵗʰ century. This movement was to gradually spread to the aristocracy and the bourgeoisie before reaching the peasant populations. It saw the creation of comfortable and sumptuous luxury furniture, made from the most outstanding types of wood.
This journey down through the ages, which the Aux-Rois-Louis Salesroom Gallery invites you to embark upon, will highlight the artistry of the cabinetmakers of days gone by. You will be able to feel for yourself the tangible trace of a savoir-faire no longer in existence. These highly skilled craftsmen have bequeathed to us, each in their own manner, each in their own way, a collection of genuine masterpieces bearing the stamp of their region. We invite you to come and discover first-hand this unique collection of Louis XIII, Louis XIV and Louis XV period furniture, crafted in the 17ᵗʰ, 18ᵗʰ and 19ᵗʰ centuries all over the country.

The Aux-Rois-Louis Gallery in Montignac-Lascaux in the Périgord Noir, close to the famous Lascaux Cave, offers a wide range of prices. We shall be more than happy to show you around.
