1895 Oyster & Litigants

1895 Liebig S455: Five cards of a six-card set dramatizing the story of "The Oyster and Litigants."  40 from Simon Rodrigues through Ebay, July, '22.

I had not known of this set, perhaps because there is no reference to La Fontaine or fables on this picturesque set.  There is reference to Perrin Dandin on the fourth card.  The only text of the story is the one-line description at the bottom of each card front.  The verso offers tributes to Liebig, recipes, and "Conseils a la Maitresse de Maison."  There are also seemingly unrelated human figures in black and white, sometimes carrying a Liebig product.  Now to find that sixth card, #5!
