Early Wide Glass Magic Lantern Slides Group 1

1890?  Twelve long colored magic lantern slides showing La Fontaine's fables.  Two fables per slide.  7½" x 1½".  €75 from revesdenfantspapiers through Ebay, July 21.    

The color work in these slides is strong, even after all this time.  The titles in the upper left are sometimes obscured by the framing of the glass.  Might the glass have been originally without a frame?
