Napoleonic Bee Earrings

Regular price $40.00

French 1769 - 1821
When Napoleon Bonaparte took up residence in the Royal Palace at Tuileries he refused to spend money on new décor. However, he could not allow the drapery - with its embroidered fleur-de-lis (The Royal French emblem) - to continue to hang in the windows. His solution was to have the drapes turned upside down, which made the overthrown monarch’s symbol look like a bee. From then on, the tenacious bee became the emblem of Napoleon Bonaparte. Gold over pewter with natural amber beads. Materials: pewter with Russian gold finish, amber bead Length: 1 1/2" Made in the USA.
