The Modern Punch Maker. No. VII.
[after Isaac Cruikshank]
[n.d. c.1806]
Hand couloured etching, sheet 170 x 220mm (6¾ x 8¾"). Trimmed within plate and glued to backing sheet. Folds as issued.
A reduced version of the print made by Isaac Cruikshank and published by SW Fores. George III sits at a small oblong table making punch in a bowl decorated with a crown. Decanters containing heads stand on a side-table.. By the punch-bowl is a sugar-loaf with the head of Grenville, looking sideways at the bowl. A lemon with the profile of Tierney lies on the table. The King holds the ladle in his right hand, turning to the side-table to take up an orange with the features of Fox. He says: "Tho the Ingredient taken seperatly, may not be pleasing to every Palate yet when mixed together may go down with a tolerable relish." The three labelled decanters in the front row contain the heads of Sheridan 'Brandy', of Ellenborough in a judge's wig 'Water', and of Windham 'Rum'. Behind the orange is a bottle of 'Arrack' containing possibly the head of Fitzwilliam. On the left stands Erskine in Chancellor's wig and gown, holding the Purse of the Great Seal. He sips a glass of the punch, saying, "I dont think it is strong enough, this Arrack is very enticing stuff, I like the taste of the Orange, it makes the Punch pleasing, better without the lemmon there I think John Bull will like it now."
