Laurel leaf ring

New product

This jewel is inspired by a gold leaf from the laurel wreath worn by Napoleon during his coronation at Notre-Dame on December 2, 1804.

This wreath, which can be found on various paintings representing the Emperor in coronation costume or on that of the coronation itself, painted by David, was destroyed during the Restoration.

While the painter Jean-Baptiste Isabey had the Emperor try the crown, a leaf came off it: Napoleon asked him to keep it.
Piously preserved by Isabey, this leaf remains the only memory of the imperial crown.

Material: Golden brass
Origin: Snuff box with gold leaves from the crown of Napoleon's coronation, 1852 (Leferre, young brothers, jewellers).
