Come and make your choice in complete tranquillity, by appointment at 06 78 92 61 98. David will open the Aux-Rois-Louis Gallery and its reserves filled with treasures, ready in advance to go on set, just for you.
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.
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.
