Storck Laboureur et enfants

1920? Postcard presenting La Fontaine's "Le Laboureur et Ses Enfants" text beside a colored illustration. Confiserie Roussier, Sarret & Cie., Grenoble. A. Storck & Co. Deposé. €9 from Dominique Chapelon, Yronde ete Buron, at the Paris Post Card Exhibition, Jan., '05.

The card is arranged in this case to allow for an advertising strip at its top. Again, it pays to watch the frame of the rather standard picture of the man and his children at his bedside. Arranged around the picture we find wheat, grapes, vines, and finally a bag of coins. Roussier and Sarret add another design on the blue verso. A female figure of abundance pours out candy for eager children to enjoy. This design is so nice that I include it here.
