This, Sire, is your foot pillow.


Huh. I wonder what the W stands for. Winner? ;) (Surely not Waterloo!)

It would be funny if the W stood for someone or something he put the boot down on, so was commemorating that victory somewhere.

Pretty sure that's a "N" when you look closely. The left side of a "W" doesn't exist.

True, but I read it as W because (1) the letter is offset from center and (2) there's a tassel where the left point of the W would be (and which would thus center the W). Also (3) obviously the thing is worn and a line of the braid could be missing.

Also (4) the left point of the (apparent?) N happens to form what looks like a damaged short line (like braid is missing) pointing directly straight back up to the left tassel, at the same angle the right stroke of the N-or-W does to meet its tassel. It looks more like a left stroke of a W went missing than that a teeny cursive stroke of a N went missing. (Though I can see why that would be just as possible, too.)

While trying to find information on it from the museum (which I haven't succeeded yet, possibly because the card would be in German), I happened to run across this epic frontier Tennessean from the days of Andrew Jackson: William Napoleon Pillow

Yeah, looked the same to me. Maybe for Wagram? Given that Boney generally stenciled everything with an "N" though, I suspect it may be just old and shifted around.

The whole "W" thing is officially blowing my mind.

In any event, @Napoleon:  call your office.

Yes, thank you for holding the clock -- I was at the office and didn't check my mail until just now; also I needed to resolve the proximity of someone, which has been done.

Also I learned a new name, so I have that going for me.  :crazy2:
