Six plates of La Fontaine's fables using images of Épinal de Pellerin. $36 from Mrs. Jack B. Frymire of Elkhorn, WI, through eBay, Sept., '05. These plates measure just over 8" in diameter.The Épinal coloring is typically brilliant! The six plates include "Le Héron," "Le Petit Poisson et le Pecheur," The Ox and the Frog, The Tortoise and the Hare, The Lion and the Mouse, and The Fox and the Crow.What a lucky find!
Besides the plate done by the "Societé Francaise de Porcelaine," which features The Tortoise and the Hare, I have a set of Épinal plates just over 8" in diameter and a single plate an inch larger depicting The Fox and the Crow.
