This medallion made up the center of the great carpet in the throne room at the Palais des Tuileries. Delivered in 1810 for the marriage ceremony of Napoleon I and Marie-Louise, it is decorated with the symbols of the Empire. The decoration fell into disfavor under the Restoration, and the carpet was cut up. The medallion in the Louvre gives some clue to what the original carpet must have looked like.
