MM Croissant- Sazerac


1911  La Laitiere et le Pot au Lait: Fable de La Fontaine.  Colored series of 5 portrait postcards photographed by Sazerac and published by Croissant.  3 cards for €10 from Cpaphil, Saint-Fargeau, France, August, '13.  Two additional cards in the series (#4 and #5) from Bertrand Cocq, along with duplicates of #1 and #3, for $6 each, Sept., '20.

The unusual thing about this set -- incomplete, to be sure -- is the coloration of the photographs.  The picturing of the dreaming of the milkmaid in the upper left corner of the card seems so similar to what I have seen in other postcard series of MM.
