Here's a NEW set of Vintage Feves for all of you who have asked for MORE! This is a set of THREE (3) Around the World figurines - Greece, Irelande, and Luxombourg, respectively! There are two men and one woman - the men are from Greece and Ireland, and the woman from Luxomborg. The man from Greece has a large moustache and a red cap; the young man from Ireland is playing a fiddle and has a cute little golfer's type hat on; the woman is wearing provencial clothing with an apron and moppet hat. These little vintage French figurines measure plus or minus 1 1/2".

We thought these would be great to add to your feve/miniature figurine collection OR give to your special mother, sister, daughter, daughter-in-law, niece, bride to be, or friend for birthday, Mother's Day, Christmas, or "just because"!

Fèves are a very popular collectible in France, and this is exactly where these Vintage French Miniature Figurines were purchased. Every year at Epiphany a cake is baked in which a little figurine/feve is hidden. The person who gets the figurine wears the paper crown (usually included with the cake) for the day. These are also known as King Cakes and are baked/eaten at Mardi Gras, Easter, etc.

They are called fèves (meaning beans) because the item hidden in the cake was originally a bean. Now they are tiny porcelain/pottery figurines which have become very collectible. There are many different themes to these sets, including nativity, animals, musicians, etc., etc.

Often these figurines are placed on a mantle or in a small curio cabinet and in France these little feves are strewn all around the house . Children are especially drawn to their diminutive size and anticipate the addition of each new type to the collection!
