Le Royal Chocolat

1900?  "Série de 12 Fables éditées spécialement pour Le Royal Chocolat."  "Two Doves" and "Oyster and the Litigants."  €3.75 each from victorbrauner on Ebay, Sept., '23

This version of "Two Doves" seems now to me, but I believe I have seen this version of "Oyster and the Litigants" somewhere before.  The format here is different from the format for cards also marked "Le Royal Chocolat" but listed under "Le Royal and Chocolat Poulain."  Is there anything in La Fontaine's text for "Two Doves" that requires a romantic or even sexually romantic relationship between the two birds?
