Abstract:
Two designs on one plate. Design on top: A fat woman sits in a nightgown on the edge of a curtained bed while her husband (right) yawns in an armchair, glass and decanter beside him. He has dropped a (broken) pipe and his book: 'Memoirs of an Amorous Fat Rump'd Old Tabby'. She watches him anxiously, holding out his nightshirt to the fire (left). An elderly maidservant leaves the room with warming-pan and candle, looking over her shoulder much amused. On the chimney-piece by the bed are bottles labelled 'Restorative Drop' and 'Corn Plais[ter]'. A cat and kitten sit by the fire. Design below: A young man and a pretty courtesan caress each other on a sofa. Beside them are wine and fruit on a round table; a dog sits on hind legs looking up at the couple. Behind a curtain (right) a degraded-looking woman drinks furtively. See British Museum online catalogue.
