This frame is inspired by a token, gone back to 1875, whose the original is preserved at the national museum of the Versailles Castle.
This token was an exceptional pass distributed by the office of the House of Marie-Antoinette Queen, any time the public reached the gardens of Versailles freely, but of the abuses having been made, some parts of the park being closed.
This token was to be presented at the Suisses guards to the entrance.
