This Cup Is a Portrait of a French Queen

cup

Legend has it that this cup was modeled after Marie Antoinette. Or rather, a portion of her body. There was not, however, a live model present for the composition. The story is not true, but that did not prevent the porcelain makers at Sèvres, France from marketing these cups as such.
