Marie Edmé Patrice Maurice de MacMahon (1808-1893), whose portrait appears on this vase, was its first owner. He was a successful military leader who was given the titles of Duke of Magenta and Marshall of France by Napoleon III, but after France's defeat in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71 and the end of the Second Empire, MacMahon was elected second President of the Third Republic of France.
