Reasonable Charges or Ducks Metamorphosed !

London, T. Tegg c. 1807

Etching

Original hand-colouring

250x350mm

£180

The interior of an inn dining room, where two elderly country squires have just eaten a good meal and are now enjoying their fruit and port. A bowing, sweating waiter has evidently just presented them with a grossly inflated bill, whereupon his customer exclaims Ducks !!!! why my good friend they are Guinea Fowls !!! In the background the grinning landlord and his wife stand eavesdropping the hallway. Not in BM Cat.
