Porcelaines Champs-Elysées

2010?  Two-colored plate of Jean de La Fontaine's "Rooster, Cat, and Mouse."  7 3/4" across.  Made in France.  Paris: Porcelaines Champs-Elysées.  $20 from AmericasMainStreet through Etsy, Oct., '23.

This handsome plate is a smaller mirror-reversed version of a plate by Creil & Montereau.  The two-color approach may especially effective for this style of presentation applying animal characters to a human scene.  Is that a scholar or a priest who is especially dangerous to this child?
