Post The Queens Shoe at her execution
I remember years ago looking at a book in the bookshop and there was a picture of Antoinette's shoes that she wore at her execution. I understand she lost one on the scaffold and someone retrieved it. Does anyone have any more information.

Yes its' in the Museum of Fine arts in Caen.... Musée des Beaux Arts. No longer exposed to public view but one can ask the curator to see it I believe.
