Galerie J Kugel
Galerie J Kugel is one of the most distinguished antique dealers in the city. The galerie is housed inside Hôtel Collot, which is a palatial neoclassical Louis Visconti-designed building along the banks of the Seine in the 7ème arrondissement. Shoppers walk up a double flight of stairs to land on the terrasse for sweeping views of the river, the Tuileries, and Place de la Concorde, only to then promenade through a series of rooms where a broad range of antiquités from ancient Rome up to 1850 are displayed in neo-Renaissance opulence. The gallery also has a 20,000-volume art library.
