Broadside, small folio, hand coloured etching by Thomas Rowlandson, neat short cross cit to lower leaf margin, minor usage, as issued. A rare Rowlandson satire on the Regency Rag Trade. The illustration shows a tailor's shop with the Taylor and his two assistants all using an iron whilst outside the window is a young lady carrying a basket of cucumbers on her head. The implications of the three elements would have been known to persons in the Regency period. "Hot Goose " refers to the tailor's smoothing iron, the "Cabbage" is old English slang for the pieces of cloth left over from Commissions and which were stitched up into garments which were sold by the Taylor, and "Cucumber time" was another Regency term for a slow season in tailoring when all that a tailor could afford were cucumbers which were plentiful in summer. The calm and homely face of the cucumber sales girl is in contrast to the strained faces of the taylor and his assistants. Not in British Museum. Only one reference to a copy traced and that was of an American dealer who has recently sold a copy with very similar colouring to this copy. N° de ref. de la librería 16367
