Abstract
  • [After Robert Cruikshank -- British Museum No. 13057]“A bedizened hag walks to the 1. with an insinuating leer, with the stoop fashionable in 1816 (see No. 12840), and with splayed-out feet. Features and dress are inscribed with the names of food in which fish predominate: (e.g.) her skirt is covered with a Fishing Net which forms a transparent hem; her high bonnet is a Scollop shell; her mouth Tulips [cf. No. 13058]; her teeth Pearl Oyster, or Sweet Meat; her hand, in which she affectedly holds an eyeglass : Fish hooks or Crabs Claws. There are many other disparaging inscriptions. Behind is a notice-board among trees: Beware of Men Traps." (Source: George)
