Steeped in history, M.S. Rau Antiques and Fine Art has been a solid fixture in New Orleans through the ups and downs of a city with its own remarkable history
Specialists in 18th and 19th century antiques and art, Rau's vast inventory is spread over a sprawling, two-story gallery and includes furniture from Versailles and other royal houses, including early American industrialists, massive sets of sterling silver from King George VI, and other pedigreed decorative art objects, porcelain and unusual rare items and memorabilia from American and European history.
This spring, two special exhibits have been assembled and are on view on the second floor of the gallery. The Rau for Art Foundation contest finalists, high school students who entered works of art inspired by the Crescent City, as well "Treasures of Rau" which showcases the best of the best from the extensive Rau inventory.
