In the convivial atmosphere of our 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.

On site David answers you and guides you in your choices.

Aux-Rois-Louis Gallery


Our new treasures:

Gilded Wooden Rococo Mirror – Louis XV – 18th Century – Provence – [ME111]

Gilded Rococo mirror crafted from wood, resonating with the essence of Provence and the quintessential Louis XV style. Originating from the 18th century, it has remarkably withstood the test of time. Its mercury glass and wooden frame coated with gold leaf gilding using the Armenian bole are both original features.

Natural Oak End-of-Bed Chest – 18th Century – South West – [MP046]

It carries the aroma of beeswax that has permeated its natural oak since the 18th century, the era of its birth – a symbol of the union of a young couple whose initials were M and P… This end-of-bed chest is eagerly waiting to return to a room where love will reign, where love will be the law, etc.

Petrified Oil Jar – 19th Century – Saintonge / Charente – [PA077]

Statufied and adorned with an emerald scarf, its gentle belly fears no ravages of time. On the contrary, it enhances it, turning this Charente pottery into a star jar, or dare I say, an authentic oil of the upscale districts.

Wedding Chest in Larch Wood – 18th Century – Haute-Loire – [MP048]

Here is an authentic Auvergne piece of furniture, a testament to the folk art as it manifested itself in the 18th century in the southeastern part of the Massif Central. This is a wedding chest assembled with thick larch wood planks, adorned with naive ornamentation inspired by the stylistic repertoires of Louis XIII and Louis XIV.

Bell Bronze Pie Dish – 19th Century – Southwest – [MP043]

Do pies baked in a pie dish cast from the same bronze as a church bell, on the very same day, carry the scent of holiness? You can find out by testing this exceptionally rare object, an authentic bell bronze pie dish, ready to ensure the most traditional cooking on a wood fire tripod.

Two Twisted Walnut Columns – 18th Century – Midi-Pyrénées – [ME105]

Here are two impressive twisted walnut columns from the 18th century. Initially, they adorned the base of the monumental staircase in a public building located in the Midi-Pyrénées region. Now, they are prepared to enhance the charm of a film set or a private residence.


The Evolution of the Mirror Over the Millennia

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.
