Heavily featured on his coat of arms, bees were one of the most important symbols of the power and prestige of Napoleon I.'s empire. As symbols of immortality and resurrection, the bee was chosen so as to link the new dynasty to the very origins of France. This lamp shade by G&C Interiors picks up on this theme and will add grandeur to your salon or entry hall. The bees have been painted on by hand in a subtle gold tone.
