A most unusual double snuffbox celebrating the Océan-class battleships of the French Navy. The Océan-class ships of the line were a series of 118-gun three-decker ships designed by engineer Jacques-Noël Sané. Fifteen were completed from 1788 on, with the last one entering service in 1854; a sixteenth was never completed, and four more were never laid down.
