Packing up!!!

description below

“In a room filled with bales, chests, and plunder the Conyngham family prepare to depart. Lord Conyngham (left), in shirt-sleeves but elegant, tugs at the cord of an enormous bundle. Lady Conyngham struggles with the lock of a treasure-chest, saying, ‘There is no such thing as getting those Devilish Locks of Bramahs open’. Her daughter carries on her shoulder the skeleton of the giraffe (see British Museum Satires No. 16108). A cupboard topped with the Royal Arms displays bare shelves; plate is heaped on the floor.”–British Museum online catalogue.
