Height : 55mm
Hand painted metal figurine.
The most distinguished regiment of the Napoleonic wars, the famous "Grognards" in a Drapeaux de France homemade version. From Marengo to Waterloo, their bearskin hats inspired fear in the heart of their enemies. Ten years of service and at least one citation were required to join the regiment.This grenadier unit was part of the "Vieille garde", Napoleon's elite corps used as a schock reserve in many battles. Nicknamed "les Grognards" because of their inclination to complain, they were deeply attached to the person of the emperor and were of the last ones to fight in 1815.
