Description

A watercolour drawing of a maid standing in front of a table in a domestic panelled interior, her left arm on her hip. The maid wears a red skirt and checked apron, with a red heart dangling at the waist. On the table is a pie or a pat of butter, and a small mirror hangs on the wall. Passers by are visible behind railings through the window behind. Inscribed in tiny lettering on the window pane, possibly 'Assist me evry Sund. . . /Oh send me all. . . '
The drawing is similar in treatment to drawings of domestic interiors that Paul Sandby made at Sandpit Gate, Windsor, after 1752.
