Biscuiterie du Mistral cookie tin featuring an illustration of The Wolf and the Lamb on its top and "Fables de La Fontaine" on its shorter sides. 9" x 9½". $5 from Anna Benichou, Strasbourg, through Luz Pintos, Carolina, PR, Sept., '00.
On the large cover here the wolf points a menacing finger at the lamb in midstream. A butterfly in the upper right serves as counterpoint to this scene of coming carnage. The image is again signed by H. Sainton or something similar. The sticker on the bottom of this tin, which details the cookies' ingredients, also announces that its cookies are to be consumed before Oct.,' 96.
