Specializing in excellence, the galerie Steinitz is proud to present some of the most beautiful objects of European decorative arts of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
Most of the pieces we present have a prestigious provenance and their equivalents can be found in the most important museums around the world.
We welcome our clients to a prestigious townhouse located just behind the Hotel de la Marine at 6 rue Royale in Paris, in a place filled with history where Madame de Staël lived between 1815 and 1817 and which today forms a privileged setting for the presentation of exceptional pieces.
