Royal Antiques is a company with an incredibly long history. It was founded in 1899 by a lady who was said to be “a veteran antique dealer who counted Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson among her customers”. She had a lifelong passion for antiques, which she passed on to her son, and the store is now in its fifth generation of family ownership. This, combined with its beautiful location in the historic Royal Street in New Orleans’ French Quarter near the Mississippi River in New Orleans, USA, gives shoppers a full historical experience when they visit!
Looking through the expansive windows of Royal Antiques, the first impression is one of endless light. It seems that every corner of the store is decorated with different light fixtures, so there are twinkle lights everywhere! Once inside, it is hard to keep your eyes from dropping as the various light fixtures hang from the ceiling throughout the store, each as impressive as the next. Every piece, from the table lamp to the large chandelier, is on, so as well as the beautiful decorative effect, the store is obviously incredibly well lit!
Due to its size, Royal Antiques is divided into several rooms, each designed to display quality. As you walk through the store, you may forget that you are in a shopping experience and feel more like you are admiring an aristocratic, historic mansion. In addition to all the lighting, shoppers and collectors can expect to see grandfather clocks, dressers and other furniture, jewelry, silverware, brooches, mirrors, glassware, china, artwork, copperware, decorative pieces and more.
The amazing goods within Royal Antiques come from England and France, both formal and provincial. They also carry exceptional mid-century modern and unique Chinese antiques. New shipments typically arrive a few times a year. It is worth joining their community as they update their website with all new merchandise as shipments arrive and send photos to those on their mailing list. With such quality antiques coming in, you definitely want to be among the first to know.
