A wax Dauphin

source: Card Cow

"This remarkable wax figure was brought from France by Captain Jonathan Coffin of Nantucket in 1796. It was represented to him to be a portrait of the Dauphin, Louis Charles, infant son of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. The Dauphin's mysterious disappearance after the execution of the Kin gand Queen is a matter of history."
