Elegant. Grand. Rare.
All these words aptly describe the pieces printed in these comprehensive catalogues. A family run business originating in 1851 in Kiev, A La Vieille Russie knows their Russian fine art and antiques. The ALVR New York branch opened in 1941. They specialize in European and American antique jewelry, 18th century European gold snuff boxes, antique Russian fine and decorative art, including silver, enamel, porcelain, paintings, icons, and furniture. The printed catalogue gives a taste of this with pieces photographed and reproduced on various coated stock with a dull finish, both cover and text, and shining foil stamping on both front and back covers.
