The Old Beau in an Extasy, Mezzotint, 1773, by J.Dixon for Carington Bowles, Greetings Card.

‘Behold this Wretch! a Fop at sixty two, / A true conceited ugly worn out Beau, / Whose Toilet boasts of every scarce Perfume / With Chinese Paint for Artificial Bloom; / A half starv’d paltry Thing – so strange all o’er / That England ne’er beheld his like before / The Girls all hate him, and at their request / Up hangs the Cap they thing will suit him best.’


130 x 180 mm, contained in cellophane wrapper with fitted envelope. Price includes Postage & Packing within UK.
