Bonbon Cards

1930?   Three circular fable images, each presenting a fable scene under the double title "Les Fables de Lafontaine" and the name of the individual fable.   At the bottom of the picture is "Bonbons Surfins."  On the right side is "La Pierrette."  Might each of these have come in a tin of candy?   The three scenes are of FC, TH, and "Le Singe et le Chat."  After finding these cards, I have now also found a candy tin from Surfins.  It presents this very same scene of FC, expanded by about a half inch around the whole circumference.  Visit the "Cans and Tins" page, on which it can be seen.
