Find the baby and become king for a day! Made in New orleans, this nastalgic porcelain figure is a handmade reproduction. The inspiration piece was ucovered from the ground in New orleans and the artist has cast it in order to carry on the tradition. 

A French tradition brought to New Orleans in 1870, a little charm known as the feve was tucked inside of each King Cake. Originally these charms were simply a fava bean that, through time evolved into a wide variety of porcelain figures and then into the mass-produced plastic babies you see today. 

This fave is an ode to the past!
