Abstract:
"A hideous man, hunch-backed and with a grotesque nose, has just mounted his horse outside a wine-shop. He chucks under the chin a fat ugly woman (right) who stands at her door, holding a handful of guineas, while a buxom young woman (left) helps his right. foot into the stirrup. The sign is that of a mermaid combing her hair with the inscription 'Lovegold from Windsor'. A bunch of grapes hangs over the door, with the word 'Win[es]'. In the panes of the projecting window are bottles of cordials, punch-bowls, &c. ..."--British Museum online catalogue.
