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!  See a further use of these designs under Porcelaines Champs-Elysée.
