On the occasion of the bicentenary of the deciphering of the hieroglyphs by Champollion (1822), Pierre Frey is unveiling "Wonders of Egypt", a new collection of fabrics, wallpapers and carpets among which eight references are the result of a completely new collaboration with the Louvre Museum in Paris.
The result of a scientific partnership, the exhibition offers a glimpse into the intimacy and novelistic creations of 19th century naturalist writers. For this occasion, the Maison Pierre Frey is lending some forty works, most of them unpublished, chosen from the Braquenié and Le Manach collections.
When the railroads developed in France, the railway lines were conceded to six companies. Each of them provided the Emperor with a train. The first imperial train was delivered by the Compagnie du Nord in 1855. The model of the wagon is kept in the Archives Department.
