A La Vieille Russie, an antique and arts dealer on 5th Avenue and 59th street in Manhattan, has been in business since 1851 when it was first established in Kiev. It is known worldwide for its collection of Russian treasures, and specializes in European and American antique jewelry, 18th-century European gold snuff boxes, and antique Russian fine and decorative art, including silver, enamel, and porcelain, paintings, icons, and furniture.
