Located in the heart of Manhattan across from the city’s most iconic park, A La Vieille Russie has called 781 Fifth Avenue at 59th Street home since 1961. The family business began its establishment in Kiev in 1851 but moved to Paris in the 1920s, where clients included Queen Marie of Romania, Grand Duchesses Xenia and Olga, sisters of Nicholas II, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, King Farouk and other prominent members of the émigré aristocracy. At the dawn of World War II, the gallery relocated from Paris to New York, initially setting up shop at Rockefeller Center in 1934 and then moving to another location Fifth Avenue in 1941 before finally resting at its present location in 1961.
With its heritage and expertise firmly rooted in Russian Imperial works of art, A La Vieille Russie became a leader in the market for Fabergé and Russian Imperial treasures, helping to form all the major American Fabergé collections such as the former Forbes Magazine Collection of Fabergé eggs.
Alongside its notable collection of Fabergé objets de vertu, A La Vieille Russie also specializes in European and American antique jewelry, 18th century European gold snuffboxes, and antique Russian decorative arts, including silver, enamel and porcelain, as well as Russian paintings, icons and furniture.
