Tragic Footsteps

These beautiful 18th century ladies shoes is labelled to have belonged to none other than Marie Antoinette herself. It were this pair that the Queen wore when the royal family was taken to Paris by an angry mob - she would probably have received them at Versailles but she would never return. The shoes are currently stored by the Metropolitan Museum of Art but are not exhibited to the public eye.
