La Rochère Napoleonic Bee Espresso Glass and Saucer (Set of 2)
Includes two sets of this perfectly paired demitasse cup and saucer.

Napoleon chose the bee as a symbol of his empire in part because it represented immortality, and in part because it had been a symbol of French royalty since the fifth century. You don't have to be royal, or even French, to appreciate the bee's charms as a decorative motif.
Glass. Made in France.
