French bronze plaque Lachasse by Stella. The scene depicts a bunch of men luring cats to be caught. Measures 13 and one quarter by 10 and one half inches. This is a 19th century recast from a work by Jacques Stella 1596-1657. It was a time when people thought cats were carring the plague, when it really was the rats. The killing of the cats, which were in fact killing the rats, let the plaque mulitply out of control.
