Title etched below image. One line of quoted text above image: "Whilst, snug in our club-room, we jovially 'twine the myrtle of Wenus with Bacchus's wine."
"Eight elderly topers with pipes and glasses surround a small oblong table, on which are punch-bowl, wine-glasses, tobacco, &c. All are much caricatured; some sing, a parson sleeps, a dog howls. The room is lit by a chandelier; a bracket-clock points to 3.40, on it is carved a Bacchanalian figure of Time astride a cask. A bust portrait of Anacreon holding pen and paper is on the wall (left)."--British Museum online catalogue.
