Antique bronze Napoleon and L'arc de Triomphe medal. This medal was designed by the French sculptor and medalist Jean-Bertrand Andrieu (1761-1822).I believe this to be a later restrike sometime between 1880 and 1901. The obverse depicts the bust of Emperor Napoleon I in relief with the medalists name underneath. The reverse depicts the Arc de Triomphe with a sunburst background and the monument designers name Albert Hergemont. The plain side edge is marked with br (bronze) in good overall condition with a diameter measures 40 cm.
