Description from Cire Trudon

As soon as the Consulate period started, Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821) became aware of the importance of having his portrait shown to the French people. Thus, he initiated the edification of his own legend. All the supports were used, from sculptures to snuff boxes and fans. The multiplicity of objects bearing the effigy of the Emperor or representing imperial symbols constituted an extraordinary tool of propaganda for the Napoleonic legend. The production of many popular objects kept the memory of the Emperor alive among the working class who were the main support of Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte, soon to be crowned Napoleon III.
