ETS Artistiques Parisiennes

1940? "Le Corbeau et le Renard." Ets Artistiques Parisiens. $18 at the Foster City Paper Fair, Feb., '97.

This lively, playful, colorful illustration shows the fox walking away with the full circle of cheese under his arm, but he is looking back and up at the crow.



1940?  "Le Savetier et le Financier."  Gil.  4900.  Ets Artistiques Parisiens.  Printed in France.  $7 from Bertrand Cocq, Calonne Ricouart, France, Sept., '18.

The paper color and the artist signature are the same in this card as in "Le Corbeau et le Renard," but the formatting of the title is different.  Are we dealing with one series or two, or perhaps with no series but simply occasional single postcards?  The color work is exquisite on this card!  It makes me think that we have others in this style, but I cannot find them!
