A matronly Queen Victoria and portly Prince Albert at the head of a procession of progeny, fourteen figures arranged in order of size. As an emaciated John Bull complains about the cost of such a large family, Victoria replies 'Our little family Mr Bull? quite envy the pleasure you must have in contemplating them! What a happy man you must be!!!'. Victoria and Albert stopped after nine children, the youngest Beatrice was only 4 years old when Albert died.
