We cannot Contain Ourselves! New Shipment Arrives at Rau

July 19th, 2010 | posted by Bill Rau

Several times a year, Rau employees anxiously await the arrival of another large container. Shipped from London, the containers travel by steam ship (then by truck or rail) and take an average of two weeks to arrive at our doors in the French Quarter. On “Container Day” all Rau employees join the unpacking team as new treasures are carefully unwrapped. From furniture to figurines, each shipment has an array of items, each with its own unique story. The container that arrived today (July 19) included several bronze sculptures (including a Renoir buste), a game table containing a plethora of playing pieces, several arm chairs, and numerous items by Galle, Tiffany Studios, and Meissen. To see all of our NEW items, check out the Recent Acquisitions portion of our website in the coming days!
