Pope Leo XIII in the 1888 tiara.

The Paris Tiara is a papal tiara given to Pope Leo XIII by the people of Paris in 1888 to commemorate his Golden Jubilee as a priest.

It was designed and manufactured by François Désiré Froment-Meurice.

As the image right shows, it featured in various paintings of Pope Leo and was heavily identified with him.

It was valued at $250,000 in 1903.
