Oh my, this plate makes me chuckle every time I look at it! The scene depicts a French hunter with his faithful dog out looking for something to hunt. On the plate there is a picnic setting with wine and bread so I'm not sure if the hunter indulged in the wine when he saw the lion swing from the gate or not, he does have a bewildered look on his face. Apparently he isn't a very good shot since Mr. Rabbit only has a hurt arm. The plate's illustrations still have bright colors after all these years.
