An exquisite example of decoration of the French Renaissance at the juncture of function and design with a very similar example in the Chalons in Champagne Museum dated 1581. Reminiscent of the Italian 1400's sophisticated relief tradition of Della Robbia and Pisanello and at one time it had been placed in the fireplace of a massive Chateau in France. At the center is the coat of Arms of the House of Bourbon from France, one of the major royal dynasties of Europe that produced monarchs Spain (Navarre) France, the two Sicilies and Parma. Bourbon kings ruled France from 1589 until the French Revolution and even short periods thereafter. The right half of the coat of arms consists of 3 lilies of French royalty and the left half is the weapon of Navarre. This combination of coats of arms can still be seen in the fireplaces of Versailles.
