Greece, Ottoman Empire - Expo Paris 1855

Missing picture

The left bank is occupied by the products of the soil of the Ottoman Empire, grains, fruits, animal skins.
On the central wall, Tripoli has exhibited its products, which are entirely made up of the remains of the hunt, among which are some beautiful ostrich skins. The back and the wall of the water's edge are occupied by leathers of all colours and goat skins.

Following the right bank, one then finds Greece. Its exhibition is reduced to a few skins and some magnificent marbles. A tomb carved after the antique in white marble from Paros, the one with which Phidias and Praxiteles carved their gods. The table on the left is covered with mosaics representing the main monuments of ancient Greece.
