Belgian Cote d'Or chocolate tin. 4¼" x 3½" x 3¼" high. The Fox and the Crow . $15 from Dany Wolfs, Roesalare, Belgium, April, '01.
This blue tin presents The Fox and the Crow well. On the cover is the decisive scene of the fox flattering and bowing. Just below is the scene, visible here, just prior to that moment, for here the crow is landing, and the alert fox takes notice of his arrival with the cheese. On the short side to the right the crow sings. On the longer side the fox, with cheese in paw, lectures the crow. On the last short side, the dejected crow weeps. The tin is in good condition. Dany tells me that this tin is hard to find.
