Bouillon, Rivoyre et Cie Children Acting

Two groups of cards seem to make use of the same plates employed for cards I have listed under "Dépot Central." All of them acknowledge Bouillon, Rivoyre and Company as their printer, and all feature children acting out La Fontaine's fables. 1890? 2 cards with full-color images of children acting out La Fontaine's fables within a border advertising B. Baloy, 42, Rue de la Chaussée d'Antin. 3" x just over 4". 50 Francs each from Annick Tilly at Clignancourt, August, '01.

The pink and floral border frames each of two scenes familiar already from cards marked by "Dépot Central," namely "Le Loup, la Mère & l'Enfant" and MSA. These cards are thus slightly larger than their "Dépot Central" counterparts. Once again, the color printing is not exact. Baloy is a shoe dealer. The "Le Loup, la Mère & l'Enfant" card shows some old paste scars on both faces, while the MSA card shows them only on the text side.
