Description

The snuffbox is decorated on the lid with a miniature depicting Napoleon Bonaparte, attributable, for the quality of the stroke and the elegant use of colors, to Jean-Baptiste Isabey. Here the emperor is represented with the collar of the Order of the Legion of Honor, the Grand Cross of the Order of the Iron Crown on his chest and the dress used on the occasion of his marriage to Marie Louise of Austria, which took place in 1810. The portrait derives from the miniature by Jean-Baptiste Isabey with the same subject, now preserved at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. The snuffbox was, therefore, a refined cadeau, made for the occasion and donated by Napoleon in memory of the event.
