"Louis XVIII sits squarely in an arm-chair, head turned slightly to the right, with a satisfied and truculent smile. In his left hand he holds a wine-glass in which kneels a tiny screaming Napoleon, submerged to the waist, with both arms raised above his head. His left foot rests regally upon a cushion, but the slashed shoe indicates that this is on account of gout. He wears dress of ancien régime type, with the ribbon and star of St. Louis. At his side (right) is a cloth-covered table on which stands a bottle of wine."--British Museum online catalogue.
