Napoleonic Cabinet

The Victoria and Albert Museum in London has lashed out £534,000, helped by a £150,000 grant from the Art Fund, to buy this Napoleonic Medal Cabinet (CLICK). Very nice too, but what has it got to do with British culture, apart from the fact it was owned by a posh Briton? Now scroll down or CLICK to view Henry Holiday's Stained-glass Windows. These would compliment the V&A's collection of stained glass at a fraction of the cost of the Napoleonic Medal Cabinet. The estimate is £8000–£12000 for those British windows. The medal cabinet is on display in the V&A's Whiteley Silver Galleries until the end of August.
