ALVR on the Adventurine

Marion Fasel of The Adventurine wrote about our new galleries and our inaugural exhibition, Celebrating Royal Faberge – The Return:

 “While ye old Russian jeweler is no longer on the street level for easy window shopping, it is still alive and well. A La Vieille Russie (otherwise known as ALVR) reopened just one block away at 745 Fifth Avenue in a glorious second story space with spectacular wraparound windows and views of Bergdorf Goodman, The Plaza Hotel, Central Park and their old corner of The Sherry Netherland…The new interior is airier than the old space, but the sense of history remains with the antiques and paintings of Russian nobility not to mention, of course, the jewelry.”
