Post Anyone own anything of Antoinette's?
This is a bit of a long shot but does anyone here own anything of Antoinette's? I guess that such things would be tremendously expensive but there must presumably be some things on the market that were at one pointed owned by either Louis or Antoinette or perhaps one of their family or retinue.

I want to acquire something that I could be sure passed through MA's hands, and I think I would be prepared to pay quite a lot for it...I am constantly on the look out. If anyone has any ideas, even a modest article like a cup, a knife etc, I would be interested. It would be a little shrine for me...

I’ve got volume 2 of a wee French book on politics, which was published in Paris in 1783 and, according to the book-plate, once belonged to the Dowager Duchess of Manchester. The Duke of Manchester was the British Ambassador in 1783, but quite who the Dowager was I have no idea, but it’s just possible that the person who owned this little book had met Marie Antoinette, or knew someone who had met Marie Antoinette. That’s about as close to her as I’ll ever get I think!

I'm thinking of cutting out a little picture of her and sticking it into a locket of mine, so she can be with me wherever she goes. I hope that doesn't sound too weird.

That would be nice :) I don't have anything what belonged to her, but I have got many posters and so on about her so that's cool.
