Amora. La Moutarde de Dijon dans son Verre Décoré "La Fontaine." Buvard "EFGÉ." 5¼" x 8¼". Opéra Publicité. $5 from Mme Denise Debuigne, Rennes, France, Feb., '02.
One of the most colorful blotters I have received. Apparently the glass jar containing Amora mustard is decorated with characters from La Fontaine's fables. One recognizes, e.g., "the Talkative Tortoise" on the glass pictured here. Many other characters from the fables appear on the rest of the blotter: tortoise and hare; fox surrounded by crow, grapes, and goat; wolf and lamb; deer, dove, frog, fish, beetle, snail, rat, and butterfly--with a nice bust of La Fontaine in their midst.
