Our new treasures:

Oak farm table – 18ᵗʰ century – Cantal – [MP031]

This Auvergne oak farmhouse table tells the story of the country where it was born. It is made of a very dense light oak due to the harsh climate of Cantal, where it has courageously grown.

Winemaker’s table in oak and poplar – 19ᵗʰ century – Champagne – [MP034]

Winemaker’s table in oak and poplar – 19ᵗʰ century – Champagne The assembly of varied geometric patterns, a cross set with four triangles joined together inside the circle of the top, is highlighted thanks to the choice of nuanced wood species, namely oak and poplar. This manner attests to the provenance of this delicate winegrower’s…

Louis XV mirror – gilded wood – 18ᵗʰ century – South West – [ME085]

Louis XV Mirror – Gilded Wood – 18ᵗʰ Century – South West of France Discreetly sized, this Louis XV mirror features a lovely scallop shell on its slightly curved pediment, framed by foliage and flowers.

Large Louis XV mirror – gilded wood – late 18ᵗʰ century – Midi-Pyrénées – [ME084]

Large Louis XV Mirror – Gilded Wood – Late 18ᵗʰ Century – Midi-Pyrénées The imposing frontispiece of this Louis XV mirror seems to have been sculpted to the size of the generous cornucopia that flourishes in the middle.

Louis XV mirror – giltwood frame – late 18ᵗʰ century – South of France – [ME083]

Louis XV Mirror – Giltwood Frame – Late 18ᵗʰ Century – South of France Fantasy shines in this Louis XV mirror thanks to the emergence of the Rocaille style.

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.
