The Presentation Garniture of Napoléon Bonaparte

Few many have effected history as dramatically as Napoleon Bonaparte. From humble Corsican origins, he became the ruler of an Empire that spanned the whole of Europe. His mark on Europe, the world, as well as the borders and laws of many current day countries, is undeniable.

Offered this December by Rock Island Auction Company is the exquisite six-piece garniture set of Napoleon Bonaparte. Crafted by the master artisans of Nicolas-Noël Boutet, this spectacular presentation was made to then-General Bonaparte after his victories against the Austrians and Sardinians in the War of the First Coalition.

They are equal parts historic object and artistic treasure.
