    Try the Albert Kahn Museum in Boulogne-Billancourt. But they're not going to have any to sell. The only way you'll find them is on the 2nd hand market; which isn't to say that some specialist camera shop won't have them, but the chances of finding that shop seem slim.

    Mustafa maybe your sister can get some Lumiere Alticolor or Filmcolor, have you tried to contact Frederic Mocellin mocellin_fr@yahoo.fr or Ronan Guinée the later is from the Albert Kahn Collection http://albert-kahn.hauts-de-seine.net/venir-au-musee/informations-pratiques/contact/

    Since Autochrome plates are sandwiched between two glass sheet the original plate + a protective plate it's very hard to see wether a plate is varnished or not. Maybe your sister can find a box with undeveloped plates at a marchee au puce, there is a big one specialised in antiquities. http://marcheauxpuces-saintouen.com/1.aspx

    Good Luck
