REVERSIBLE CARICATURE - "Courtship/Matrimony". Circa 1840.

Original pencil and black ink reversible double-portrait in profile, "Courtship/Matrimony", image size 13 x 10cm, neatly, cleverly, and proficiently executed on thin card, with burnished pencil finish, depicting the heads of a grotesque couple in nineteenth-century dress, gazing lovingly into each other's eyes ("Courtship"), and leering miserably at each other when the image is reversed by 180 degrees ("Matrimony"); in good condition with some overall light dusting, a couple of vertical creases faintly affecting background, and old mount marks to the reverse.
