Biscuiterie du Mistral cookie tin featuring an illustration of The Tortoise and the Hare on its top and "Fables de La Fontaine" on its shorter sides. 9" x 9½". $24.99 from John and Louise Balistrieri, Skillman, NJ, through eBay, May, '08.
On the large cover here the hare is eating a carrot while the tortoise approaches the goal. A butterfly, a bird, and some cheering turtles are also near the goal. The image is again signed by H. Sainton or something similar. The illustrations on the sides are identical with those on the other Mistral cookie tins, one example of which is pictured above. How many of these tins are there in the series, I wonder?
