A nice antique Victorian era Grand Tour souvenir from France. The Medallion depicts Empress, Queen Josephine, wife of Napoleon Bonaparte from 1796-1809. I believe the original Medallion was designed by Bertrand Andrieu circa 1805, this example dates late 1800s, very early 1900. The Medallion is made of terra cotta or plaster and is in a metal frame, it is complete with glass. Overall dimensions are 3 1/2" in diameter x 1/2" deep. The Medallion is in very good overall condition. There are only a few tiny white specks on the actual medallion, the rest is dust on my camera lens.
