Chocolate Cards (Aiguebelle)
MetadataShow full item record
2 full-color portrait-formatted French cards, "Le Grillon" and "Le Roi et les deux Bergers," featuring fables from Florian. 4½" x just over 3½". "Edition de la Chocolaterie d'Aiguebelle (Drôme)" on both sides of each card. $6 each from Bertrand Cocz, Calonne-Ricouart, France, March, '01.
Very pleasing cards, with better illustration work than on many such cards. The framing of the card is done well on either of the two, with a flowing ribbon moving up from the Aiguebelle credit at the bottom alongside the illustration and fable title and past the "Fables de Florian" group title at the top of the card. The verso presents the full fable text.
