Furor Oil FS

1924  Colored postcard advertising Furor Oil through FS.  Signed by artist “R.V.”  $12 from Bertrand Cocq, Calonne-Ricouart, France, Sept.,’ 20.    

Bertrand describes the card as rare.  The fox speaks: “The stork’s beak passes without effort here, Sir, but to taste itit takes a barrel of Furor Oil!”  I wonder if “appreciate” might be a better translation of “gouter” here.  The cartoon-work and the approach reminds one of Benjamin Rabier.
