Description
 
A hand colored lithograph depicting a sleeping woman with mother cat and kittens playing beneath her crinoline.  A nearby maid quips "Lawk a daisy me! Won't Misses jump when she wakes to find Pussy and Kittens under her Crinoline".  Reverse is blank.  Measures 12"  x 8 1/2". No OCLC or other online reference (August 2018). The crinoline, an oft mocked undergarment became a subject matter portrayed by S. Marks & Sons in the same manner as the vinegar valentine.
