First four Cantiniere couples

By Panos Charalampakis

These are the first four couples of my Cantiniere ladies of the 2nd empire from Segom. They are designed by Jean Barriere and engraved by Daniel Lepeltier at 30mm based on Rousselot plates. So from upper left going clockwise we have:

Upper Left: Cantiniere des Cent-Garde while being presented to the Emperor and his wife.
Upper right: Cantiniere des Chasseurs a pied de la Garde.
Lower right: Cantiniere des Zouaves.
Lower left: Cantiniere du 6eme Rgt. de Dragons.

In the next article, four more couples will be presented untill all 20 of them are ready to be displayed as a collection framed with their correspodnent name tags.
