LM Postcard Fructine-Vichy

1913?  Fructine-Vichy postcard featuring a girl on a ladder using her toy to reach jam on the shelf.  LM: "On a souvent besoin d'un plus petit que soi."  SKy.  $8 from Bertrand Cocq, Calonne Ricouart, France, Sept., '18. Second copy for $6 from Bertrand Cocq, Calonne Ricouart, France, Sept., '20.

This collection has other contributions from Fructine-Vichy.  This effort is both cute and well executed.  The color work is excellent.  We succumb to advertising today.  Here in 1913 someone is succumbing to send a cute laxative postcard to a presumed friend!  The second copy seems to have been colored in with crayons in a way far less professional than was true of the first copy.  This is one of many postcards celebrating aphoristic phrases from La Fontaine's fables.
