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 today his two daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren all contribute to its future!
