Lovely dress dating from the period of the First French Empire in taffeta silk changing from green yellow bronze to purple and deep violin. Nice finishing sewing by hand, this high-waisted dress closes at the front with two slides at the neckline and under the chest, back cutting in diamond ending with an elegant rose, ancestor of the pet-en-l'air.

The Empire Aubusson Rug in the Emperor's bedroom has a circular central medallion on a gold background with large open areas. The motifs are in the neoclassical style of Percier and Fontaine favored by Napoleon. The gold of the Aubusson rug and blue silk fabric are on opposite ends of the color wheel.
