7" white plate from Sarreguemines, France
7" white plate from Sarreguemines, France. Inside a 1.5" rim there is a representation of Grandville's THe Wolf and the Lamb. The front carries two inscriptions: "Fables de la Fontaine" and "4. Le Loup et l'Agneau." The back has a "Digoin" stamp.
The wolf makes a highly dramatic gesture of pointing to the lamb in accusation. Could it be true that in some instances the fourth plate in this series was not The Wolf and the Lamb, but rather "The Cat and the Monkey"?
