Le Sirop de Gaļarsol

Le Sirop de Gaļarsol

1920? Two crayon-colored cards advertising "Le Sirop de Gaļarsol."  FS and WL.  Illustrated by Benjamin Rabier.  "Image a colorizer."  Laboratoires Bouty, Paris.  €4 each at St. Ouen, August, '15.

Rabier is easily distinguished by the smile -- or smirk? -- on the fox's face in FS.  The characters of wolf and lamb seem out of proportion to each other on WL.  A rectangle in the upper left indicates in each case how to color the card.  The verso of each is taken up with identical "Conseils d'hygične familiale."
