Context: The Le Page family of Paris, father and sons, emerged as the most outstanding makers of deluxe firearms for the French nobility during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Jean Le Page, the maker of this gun, held an appointment to the French king, Louis XVI, as royal gunmaker, and after the Revolution to the Emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte, who commissioned this weapon. The gun bears the imperial monogram "N" (for Napoleon) in two locations. This firearm was apparently presented as a gift by Napoleon to the Polish count, Vincent Corvin Graf von Krasine-Krasinski.
