C.1800-15. Circular, 3 ¼” diameter, black japanned papier-mâché with a scene on the cover of an old man with a shotgun walks from his front door with his wife behind him poised to strike him with a club. Another pigeon, egad, I’m in luks way this morning. The reference is to the large wood pigeon native to England and edible. The form corresponds to the pockets of men’s waistcoats of the period.
