This oval frame in black wood with domed glass is typical of the Napoleon III style. At the time (19th century) it was used to keep family or religious souvenirs.
I'm presenting it with baby's slippers on a dark blue velvet background and a few flowers, but there are so many other possibilities! Give me one of your precious memories and we'll make it unforgettable.
Late 19th century
Style: Napoleon III
Nephew of Napoleon I, Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte was elected President of the Second Republic in 1848 before becoming Emperor Napoleon III in 1852 following a coup d'etat.
Napoleon III style is one of the most interesting even if nothing is really novel with elements borrowed from preceding styles. Based on the taste of the period, Japanese, Chinese and Oriental art brings a richness, abundance and eclecticism specific to this period.
