High quality French gilt bronze inkstand on marble base with central eagle and swans either side of a lift up section to house three cut glass original bottles with ormolu lids. Napoleon was keen to have the eagle represent power and Empress Joséphine was very fond of swans. The state rooms of her home at Malmaison feature swans on the chair arms, curtains, carpets, and porcelain.
