WWII letter found in Louis XV desk at Versailles
Published on January 12th, 2012 | by Sevaan Franks0
The letter, released this week by the chateau, details restoration work on the desk during the war. The restorer says he wrote the note after he finished the work – just as Paris was being liberated from the Nazis in August 1944.
The letter was found in one of the desk’s many small drawers, which can be opened only by a complex mechanical system of secret buttons and locks considered cutting-edge in its day.
