News from the Museum of the Legion of Honour

The museum in Paris has enriched its collection with a couple of unique acquisitions.
News from the Museum of the Legion of Honour

The Museum of the Legion of Honour (Le Musée de la Légion d'honneur) in Paris has expanded its already fine collection during the end of 2019.
The museum has acquired a Grand Eagle (Grand Cross) of the Legion of Honour belonging to marshall Grouchy (1766-1846). The insignia is a special model with a large crown and a suspension that allows the Grand Eagle to turn, which is unique and not known from other Legion of Honour Grand Crosses.


The museum has also acquired a Grand Cross with breast star of the Polish Virtuti Military order, belonging to marshall Davout (1770-1823).
