Magic in Paris!

8 Comments

I love worn out things, antiques and a real mystery. This apartment near Opera Gariner in Paris captures all of this. Nobody has set foot in this apartment since 1942! Can you believe this has stood completely untouched for over 70 years!
20140108-111926.jpgThe apartment belonged to Madame de Florian a highly social lady whom during World War II escaped from Paris. She must have left in a rush because the apartment was a bit messy. 20140108-114427.jpg20140108-115641.jpg
Still, it’s fascinating how well an apartment can be “conserved” in over 70 years! I would have expected the amount of dust to have been piled up at least a few decimeters.20140108-115723.jpg
De Florian never returned to Paris, however she still paid rent until she passed away at age 91. In the apartment one could find everything of interest and things very common to that era, like the stuffed ostrich for example. The Mickey Mouse must have been very modern at the time.

20140108-114554.jpgOne also found the lovely, long lost portrait by Giovanni Boldini. Turns out that Madame de Florian herself was in the paining, which now has been sold for over 2 million dollars at an auction (a record for the artist). Check out the dress – isn’t it magnificent? 20140108-115410.jpg

20140108-115410.jpgApparently she spend the rest of her life in the south of France. The mystery is why did she never return? Why continue to pay rent for 70 years if you don’t plan to come back? If not for anything else, come back for that painting!
