Lot Essay

Paul et Virginie was a popular love story by Jacques-Henri Bernardin de Saint-Pierre, first published in 1788 ad purportedly a favourite of Napoleon Bonaparte. The model is very similar to a design by jean-Baptiste Huet which was reproduced on jouy cotton manufactured by Christophe-Phillipe Oberkampf in circa 1802.
