This Paris Apartment Was Locked For 70 Years – You Won’t Believe The Treasures They Find When It’s Finally Opened!
A Parisian apartment was locked up and abandoned ever since 1939, that is, until now. The auctioneer that was supposed to have done a full scale of the inventory, according to the owner’s will, but he never expected to have walked into this marvelous time capsule.
Madame de Florian was the owner of the apartment, and she fled Paris when she was just 23-years-old. She fled to south of France in fear of a German attack.
The Madame continued to pay rent for the rest of her life, although she never did return to it. She died at the age of 91 in 2010; that’s when her heirs learned of the secret treasure she left for them.
The apartment was frozen in time, as it was never disturbed in the Madame’s absence. The furnishings had gathered dust and cobwebs. The professionals who opened up the apartment could only describe it as “Breathtaking”.
Every makeup and perfume bottle were still intact ready for use. They stood on this amazing work of art.
Much was learned from the Madame’s life through her possessions. Marthe de Florian was a well-known Parisian actress, and lived life to the fullest lavishly. She was among the “high society” of Paris. Collections of love letters, were found, many from famous suitors like Prime Ministers and Presidents of France.
