This is a limited edition numbered piece marked on the underside Daum France, 858/2000, A. Fassianos. This figure is known as Kallistis, which in Greek means "For the fairest one."

The ensuing quarrel among Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite (who each considered that the golden apple was meant for her) to possess the golden apple eventually led to the Trojan War.
