One small The Fox and the Grapes brass button, 5/8" in diameter

One The Fox and the Stork button, 5/8" in diameter
The conception of the scene seems slightly different here from both the 1" and the 3/4" The Fox and the Stork versions. The defining line at the bottom of the scene is higher. The strong set of defining masses at the lower ...
2 The Fox and the Stork buttons, apparently matched, 3/4" in diameter
