The Return of the Real

In some cases, only the real thing will do. The original desk used by Marie Antoinette was recently purchased from a private dealer for return to Versailles. The total cost was 6.75 million Euros and made possible with support from LVMH and pharmaceutical giant Sanofi-Aventis. The desk in the photos is a similar piece currently on display in the Maria Antoinette apartment. Photos of the original have not yet been released. Read the full story here.
