M.S. Rau Antiques has recently expanded our gallery space, opening the new 4,500-square-foot Le Salon just steps away from our main gallery on Royal Street. The addition, which is located at 610 Toulouse Street, boasts two stories of museum-like gallery space, showcasing exceptional fine art and antiques offered by M.S. Rau.
We invite guests and customers to visit Le Salon, where four large rooms exhibit items such as an elaborately-carved bedroom suite owned by Benito Mussolini, a Charles X billards table made by Chevillotte of Orleans, France, an outstanding 24-light Baccarat crystal chandelier, and several tester beds.
Owner Bill Rau is very excited about expanding the business and increasing Rau’s presence in the French Quarter. “The addition of Le Salon allows us the unique opportunity to display some of our finest antiques in a more home-like setting, something we think our customers will really respond to,” says Bill. “We see the Salon as a great step forward in our company’s progress.”
Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. Guests can view the exquisite pieces at Le Salon by entering the main gallery, 630 Royal Street.
