This exceptional Empire plate warmer was specially crafted for one of the most legendary men in Western history, Emperor Napoléon I. Made especially for the Emperor's home service, the plate is the work of the preeminent Martin-Guillane Biennais, the Goldsmith to the Emperor who was, in his age, considered the best jeweler in France. Displaying the high level of craftsmanship for which Biennais is renowned, the plate is formed in the elegant neoclassical style that pervaded the Empire age. Rounded with two folding handles and crafted of brass redore, it is engraved with the Imperial Coat of Arms of the First Empire.

A similar warming dish after Biennais is currently held in the collection of the Museum of Decorative Arts, Cabinet des Dessins, in Paris.
