Louis the Sixteenth and Marie Antoinette's Last Letter

The last letters from Louis the Sixteenth and Marie Antoinette. I noticed them on a wall in the oldest restaurant in Paris (Procope 1686). Certainly they are copies, nevertheless there they were. Hanging on the wall while we ate... Mari and I did not eat cake, but we did enjoy the view. Note: Last letter Marie Antoinette.

Such a beautiful painted chest. Made for Louis Joseph, son of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI and Dauphin of France. Louis Xvi, Marie Antoinette, Rococo, Baroque, Chateau Versailles, Versailles Garden, French Royalty, Maria Theresa, French History

This is Versailles

Louis XVI used this wallet for his secret correspondence with Beaumarchais and used to contain papers which contents the King did not want the court to know about. The wallet is made of red Moroccan leather decorated with golden motifs. The inside is lined with green silk. It is the lock however which is quite interesting. The white and pink gold lock has six dials with different letters on it which can be turned to form the correct code: A-L-O-U-I-S.
