Adolphe Willette's Cantiniere
In 1901 she was featured on the cover of Le Rire as an 1860s Turco Cantiniere.
These remind me a bit of Leroy Neiman's "Femlins" from Playboy magazine.
Toward World War One the character became an earthy but patriotic symbol of France.
I have no explanation for this one.....
