A disciple of Cheret, Fernel has created a charming droll design for Bonne Cafetiere. The delightful troop of half dozen serious gentleman town criers, walk in step as they announce enthusiastically to "Buy Good Coffeepot Chicory." The colours seem to emphasis the message, with a vibrant red dissolving into a muted green, which contrasts with the tan colour of the men's' matching elegant long coats.
