Print, Pot-à-Oille (Design for a Tureen with Handle for the Empress Josephine), plate 46, in Recueil de decorations intérieures (Collection of Interior Decorations)

This is a Print. We acquired it in 1920. Its medium is etching on cream wove paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

The fact that a pre-eminent architect of the royalist era was able to survive in Napoleonic France is visible in Josephine’s choice of Charles Percier to create table articles, such as this tureen design, as well as the interiors of her residence, Malmaison.

This object was catalogued by Karin Zonis.
