French Art Nouveau 'Wolf and Dog' Fireback

About

20th century French Art Nouveau fireback with the fable of the wolf and the dog (Jean de la Fontaine 1621-1695). A hungry wolf meets a well-fed dog and compliments him on his good appearance. The dog describes his life of ease and invites the wolf to join him. As they go on their way, the wolf asks why the fur about the dog's neck is worn away. The dog replies that it is merely caused by the collar he has to wear at home. The wolf then leaves him, saying that a full belly is a rather poor price to pay for liberty. The fireback is made of cast iron. The patina is natural brown. Upon request it can be made black / pewter. The fireback is in a good condition and does not have any cracks.
