'Rump of Beef' plainly dressed, fat, and with flexed knees. B'reast of Veal', with projecting breasts much exposed. 'Veal Cutlets', two simpering girls walking arm-in-arm. 'Baron of Beef', a vast woman, walking aggressively, wearing a fur stole, her hands in a muff. 'Pork Sausage', a long thin woman."--British Museum online catalogue, description of an earlier state.
