Delacre French cookie tub. "Fables de La Fontaine." 7" x 6" x 6" high. $15 from Dany Wolfs, Roesalare, Belgium, April, '01.
Here again is The Fox and the Crow , dramatically presented in five cartoon panels around this oval tin. The title of this fable stands over the first two panels. Each panel is accompanied by two to five lines of La Fontaine's text. The crow is dressed in tuxedo and high silk hat and carries a cane. The fox is in a jaunty country outfit with a large feather--and two ear-holes--in his cap.
