Historical cup "Napoleon's Cabaret"

The cabaret of the service of the Emperor was delivered to the palace of Tuileries March 31, 1810, for the marriage of Napoleon and Marie-Louise.

Dominique Vivant Denon is at the origin of the idea of this Egyptian-style coffee service, whose cartels with landscapes (here Philae) and the portraits painted in grisaille by Antoine Béranger use boards of Denon's work, * Travel in Upper and Lower Egypt *. The saucer is decorated here with the portrait of Mamluk Roustan, who served Napoleon from 1799 to 1814 as a bodyguard and valet.

Josephine herself had two such services, one of which is now preserved in the National Museum of Malmaison Castle.

Set executed by the Manufacture de Sèvres.
