Le Louvre des Antiquaires

High brow shopping for fat wallets and investors…or a pleasant promenade among beautiful objects and a voyage back in time…

Since 1978, the Louvre des Antiquaires, right next to the Louvre museum, hosts the boutiques of dozens and dozens of connaisseurs and experts that sell things from years past. On the grounds of what was before the Grands Magasins du Louvre which was founded in 1855 to compete with Le Bon Marché. It closed it’s doors in 1974.

It had over a century of history and success, selling anything that their clients might desire and everything à la mode (in style). Now it is a building full of offices, and on the underground, ground and 1st levels are where you will find the rows of antique dealers with their treasures on brilliant display.

A stroll here is a daydream as well as a moment of education, because you will find things from all over the world and from all different eras… Don’t be afraid to press your nose against the windows, ask questions and linger…

Here is a look at just some of the possibilities you could find there :
