Three Tin Tea Set Plates. Each 5.5" in diameter. The Fox and the Stork, The Ox and the Frog, and The Wolf and the Lamb. $45 each from Ray Hanson, Garland, TX through Ebay, Feb., '99.
1. The curved edge of each of these plates, almost an inch in width, has a green, gold, and red pattern. Then in the center is a multicolored illustration. Here the disgruntled fox stands away from the stork and his vases and looks at the viewer. All three of these plates show some rust and staining. They may have spent some serious time in someone's attic or even sand-box! 2. The Ox and the Frog is the best preserved of the three plates; it seems to lack the pock-marking of the other two. The composition of the design balances the two main animals, frog and ox, nicely. In a moment, this scene will not be so placid! 3. The wolf towers over the lamb. A viewer who wants to check can find that the water is indeed moving from the wolf to the lamb. Another pleasing composition!
