Jeff Koons's Split Rocker coupe service plate is a 12.5" limited edition porcelain plate fabricated by the famed porcelain maker Bernardaud in Limoges, France. It is packaged in a presentation box and is dishwasher safe but not microwaveable.

First conceived of in the late 1990s, the first Split Rocker was inspired by the artist's son's rocking horse and toy dinosaur, and is composed of the two animals' heads, which are split down the center and not quite conjoined into a single hybrid head. Live flowers color the sculpture, which is watered by an irrigation system within its stainless-steel armature. It was last exhibited in New York's Rockefeller Center in July 2014.
