Finial in the form of an eagle, French, 1813–1814
Approx. 10 in. high, this originally sat on the top of the pole support of a silk Napoleonic flag in the Short Gallery, which was not taken by the thieves. The finial is made of bronze, but may have had the appearance of gold to the thieves. The finial is one of only two objects stolen.
