Napoleon III Cut Crystal and Ormolu Vase
In the early 19th century the typical, but fine flower vase was made of porcelain. The better ones were mounted in gilt bronze. But the most fashionable were of cut crystal and gilt bronze. The vogue for them began in France when Napoleon was emperor, and spread to Britain, Russia, and the United States. It continued through the reign of his nephew Emperor Napoleon III. This vase has four imperial eagles on the corners of the base. They could refer to either emperor, but the attenuated proportions, and the gutsy sunburst cut in the crystal, indicate it dates to the reign of the latter.
