This is a companion to the previous lot - also drawn by Charles Williams. On the left is a housemaid composed of a bucket, dustpan and various different types of brushes. The legs are comprised of a mop and a broom. On the right is a cook made up from a barrel of flour, salt box, kettle, saucepan, rolling pin and bowl, supported on a ladle and fork. Beneath the image and flanking the title are two poems to complement each image. For the housemaid: "Proud of imaginery plume
Let none o'er modest worth presume." For the cook: "Some shew airs where ere they got e'm Tho nothing but a Scrub at bottom." See the previous lot for the companion print.
Some soil and a repaired tear in the blank margins.
