After more than 30 years at The Louvre des Antiquaires, Galerie des Arts Ouaiss Antiquités has moved to the 8th arrondissement, nearby Place Beauvau and the Palais de l'Élysée, in the heart of the Paris Antiques Market : the Miromesnil Street, a historic landmark since the 18th century.
Galerie des Arts is a family-run gallery dedicated to small, precious and collection objects. Well-known to museums and major collectioners, it has established itself as a must-see gallery for lovers of antique snuff boxes and objects de vertu from France and Europe, from the 18th to the 20th century.
It houses a rare and sumptuous collection of gold snuff boxes and gold boxes adorned with precious stones, enamels on gold or micromosaics, but also exhibits many other collection and curiosity art objects: opalines and crystals from the Charles X period, splendid curiosity pieces in Vienna enamel, precious chests, a set of silver ewer and decorative pieces in gilded bronze.
Mr. and Mrs. Ouaiss, founders of the Galerie des Arts, are today accompanied by one of their daughters,
Nidal Ouaiss-Sioufi, who will be delighted to welcome you to their gallery and show you their collection (by appointment only).
