From Kiev to Paris to New York, A La Vieille Russie is once again on the move – but we’re not going very far!

After 56 years at the same address, and 75 years on the same block, we’re excited to be relocating to a new and equally convenient gallery one block south at 745 Fifth Avenue. The bright new space will allow us to continue to showcase our unparalleled collection of rare antique jewelry, Fabergé, decorative arts, and Russian works of art.

ALVR storefrontIn 1933, we first brought the gallery to New York from Paris and Kiev on the heels of war and revolution. This move will be our fourth since opening that storefront as one of Rockefeller Center’s first tenants. We are one of a handful of art and antiques businesses that have remained in the same family for generations, and over the years developed a reputation for scholarship, leadership, and integrity, while stimulating American taste for Russian art.  We were instrumental in introducing the work of Russian court jeweler Carl Fabergé to American audiences, in forming major museum collections, and in contributing to the continued strong popularity of the jeweler’s work. Today, A La Vieille Russie continues its tradition of offering unusual and important works of art, with a commitment to friendly and knowledgeable service.

ALVR storefront Fifth AvenueWe enjoyed our iconic 781 Fifth Avenue location for over 56 years, where we greeted generations of clients and held groundbreaking exhibitions. Our new location officially opened on December 1st, 2017. In celebration of our new space, we had a special Fabergé exhibition in spring 2018, featuring works lent to Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts in Norwich, UK for their Royal Fabergé exhibition. In the fall of 2019, we had another exhibition, Deceptively Modern, featuring a collection of jewelry from the 1940s to the 1980s. We continue to participate in The Winter Show, TEFAF, and TEFAF New York Fall.

Please join us as we embark on this new chapter. We look forward to sharing our future with you.
