7" white plate from Sarreguemines, France
7" white plate from Sarreguemines, France. Inside a 1.5" rim there is a representation of Grandville's "The Wolf Pleading Against the Fox." The front carries two inscriptions: "Fables de la Fontaine" and "8. Le Loup Plaidant Contre le Renard." The back has a smudged partial stamp.
Each litigant has a raised hand as he makes a legal point. The judge rests both hands on the bench and peers through his spectacles.
