Creil & Montereau Monochrome

1900?  Set of 12 monochrome -- brown against a cream background -- Creil Montereau plates.  Each numbered plate offers an application or human occurrence of La Fontaine's fables.  100 from assietteparlante21 through Ebay, Sept. '21.

This set seems identical in form with the four colored plates I found earlier.  One (Fool Selling Wisdom) is cracked and repaired.  A lovely set, full of wit!
