Our History

The business was founded in 1899 by Hermina Keil, who came to New Orleans from Alsace- Lorraine, Germany. In her obituary, she was said to be “a veteran antique dealer who counted among her customers, Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson.” She became an authority on antiques, particularly rare furniture, silver and antique jewelry. Her son, Morris Keil, expanded the business, and over the many decades, his two daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren have all contributed to the success and future of the business. Leslee Shapiro is the great granddaughter of Hermina Keil and today is the proprietor of Royal Antiques.
