  1. I am trying to identify what this 19th century ormolu mount could be depicting - any ideas/thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    His mantel is covered in fleur de lis so he's going to be a French king. He's dedicating his crown to the cross and wearing armor with his shield on the ground beside him so... Louis IX my best guess.
