This is an highly collectible miniature porcelain figurine from France.

These are hidden in King's Cake (Galette des Rois), the day of the Epiphany on January 6. This year Epiphany falls on a Sunday.

The person who find the porcelain becomes the King, gets to wear the Crown (usually made of cardboard and painted gold), chooses his Queen and becomes the one who will provide the cake the next year.
These porcelain figurines replaced the common fava bean around 1870, but I remember my grandmother still using a fava bean as porcelain was only used in the cake from the Bakery.

The " Galette des Rois" (last picture) in northern France, where I come from is made of puff pastry dough on top and bottom, sealed with egg whites, and in between lays a rich layer of "frangipane" (almond powder, butter, sugar) where the porcelain is hidden. In southern France they serve another cake, which is more like a "brioche" with candied fruit.
I host a King's cake party every year with my American friends and it is always a hit!

Price is for one figurine.
