Chocolat Lombard

1915? Chocolat Lombart. La Fontaine: Poète & Romancier, Auteur de Fables, Contes & Novelles. La Fontaine portrait flanked by FC and MM. Paris: Chocolat Lombart. $19.50 from Alexandre Przopior, April, '00.

One of the most beautiful and rarest cards I have. Lovely coloring of an unusually young-looking picture of La Fontaine. The moon (or sun?) forms a perfect halo around the crow about to drop the cheese to the fox, and the milkmaid has both arms raised in a gesture of surprise. No writing on the back of the card.
