7" white plate from Sarreguemines, France
7" white plate from Sarreguemines, France. Inside a 1.5" rim there is a portrayal of The Fox and the Crow (X 2). The front carries two inscriptions: "Fables de la Fontaine" and "Le Renard et le Corbeau." The back has "Fables de la Fontaine" and "Digoin/Sarreguemines/France." $33 from Brown Pelican Antiques, Panama City, FL, May, '99.
This illustration uses Grandville for the basic form of the raven but the rest of the scene is differently conceived. The briskly walking fox wears a cape and carries a hat.
