A satire at a restaurant; the waiter apologising to the client that he had forgotten the wine at 20 frances more! It forms part of an 1838 series of lithographs devised by Bouchot for "Le Charivari" under the thematic title of "Erreurs". From 'Le Charivari', the illustrated newspaper published in Paris, from 1832 to 1937. After 1835, when the government banned political caricature, Le Charivari began publishing satires of everyday life.
