Cushion of the carpet in Napoleon's campaign tent
Warning: Last items in stock!
The carpet here is inspired by the reconstruction of the Emperor’s campaign tent from the Napoleonic wars.
The reconstruction was based on a model conserved at the Mobilier National.
Generally the exterior was made of blue and white striped drill, edged with a fringe of red wool. The interior is decorated with an indienne fabric, most probably printed at the Oberkampf Manufactory in Jouy. On the ground, a leopard-print carpet, evoking the saddle-cloths of cavalry officers.
The tent was set up on battlefields and comprised a bedroom in the back with an iron bed with a strap base and in the front, a study with a folding writing desk and chair. In the reconstruction, you can also see the Emperor’s famous grey redingote.
