"Napoleon's Boots" Match Holder

The Little Corporal's boots, reinterpreted as table-match holders, stand by his boot-jack, which serves as striker. This finely crafted porcelain fantasy, probably French, is approximately 4/12 inches tall on a plinth about 4 inches by three inches. Condition is excellent, with only minor wear to the gilding at the top of the plinth, and a small under-glaze chip at the base.
