Fèves are hand painted, porcelain or ceramic figurines.
They are made to be put inside an Epiphany Cake,
 or King Cake (Gâteau de Roi)
 
for the "Epiphany" Holiday (La fête de l'épiphanie ou fête des rois)
that originate in France.

 

 

This holiday is celebrated every year on January 6th
 and tradition states that this is the day that the three wise men came to Bethlehem, to honor the baby Jesus.

 

A long running tradition in France is to bake a cake,
 and insert a bean (fève) inside the cake.

 

The person who finds the bean in his or her slice, is king for the day.
More recently, this "bean" has been replaced by a ceramic or porcelain figure.

 

This tradition has been commercialized, and there is a very wide assortment
 of porcelain and gold figures that are made for the Epiphany.
 They go by several names, King Cake figures, Epiphany figures, or "Fèves".

 

The sets can contain from 6 to 12 figures.
Examples of these are Asterix, Babar, Toy Story, Lady and the Tramp,
 Looney Tunes, Horse Racing, Nativity, Red Riding Hood etc.

 

The fèves are relatively small at 1,40 inch or less in size!
