A shew heifer going to Leinster Stable Yard

lwlpr35077-1024x790

Lord Leinster, personified as a rough Irish farmer, leads Queen Caroline by a rope around her neck. Leinster expounds: ‘Dam me! no one but the D… shall stop her.’ Another figure in the background, probably Bartolomeo Pergami, replies: ‘Stop Nosey, let me feel that Heifer.’

The rat hunt

lwlpr35076-663x1024

“The head and shoulders of the dog, who has a handsome collar inscribed ‘John Bull’, project into the design from the right. One paw presses down a rat with the head of Wellington, who looks up in anguish at the dog’s angry jowl. Behind are other frightened rats with human heads: a bloated bishop, Peel, Wetherell, Eldon, Cumberland, and two others. The rats have been robbing the barn of ears of wheat.”–British Museum online catalogue.
