Located on a Russian site, details (transl) from 2014.
Good for examining dye fade too!

Napoleon's famous green uniform at the Army Museum in Paris, where, for the first time in 200 years, a cult piece of clothing could be seen along with the vest and decorations that Napoleon also wore on the island of St. Helena.

Last week this exhibition came to an end, and the uniform of the colonel [Chasseurs Cheval of the Imperial Guard] (which belongs to the same [?] museum) was given to be photographed in detail.

Conservation Restorer Raffaella Dejean, textile conservation expert "The work will consist mainly in the removal of previously faded restoration interventions (made about 25 years ago), a thorough cleaning of the exhibits."

Bit of a cheat on the grande cordon I see!
