Napoleons Vase Perth Museum
Urn of marble made for Napoleons wife Empress Josephine. She died in 1814 and the vase was bought by Lord Gray of Kinfauns Castle where it stood until 1932. The eagle and the wreath on the base of the vase were the crest used by Napoleon and Empress Josephine and often appear on their furnishings.
