Horn snuff box with a depiction of the ceremonies of the return of Napoleon's ashes to Paris. The exact moment shown concerns December 15th, 1840, when the cortege passes in front of the Arc de Triomphe, down the Champs Elysées. The cortege is said to have been so heavy it had to be drawn by sixteen black horses. The description reads: Translation des cendres de Napoleon 15 10mme 1840.
