Complete Series of 10 Fable Fèves

2010?  Complete Series of 10 Fable Fèves.  $11.90 from Collecstore13 through Ebay, August, '20. One duplicate of WL as a "cadeau."

This is a particularly successful set of fable fèves.  The challenge is regularly how to bring together the two characters often involved in a fable.  That challenge makes MM perhaps the most curious piece in this group.  Is her "leaning back" posture meant to suggest the coming fall of the pail of milk?  The fox is wonderfully smug, though the grapes appear to be quite near his reach.  WC, I would say, is particularly successful. This set can also be seen in three dimensions here.
