A fantastic 1869 humorous print from the famous "Charivari" French paper showing Lady Diplomacy wearing the most magnificent clothes, and preparing a special, home made, gruel for the cats of the world.
They are all ready it seems to eat Lady Diplomacy's cat's food, and come one by one to get their portion.
Some of the cats are of course easily recognizable. These are all from Europe, there is the German cat to the left, the British cat to the right, the Italian cat in the background and I believe the Spanish cat in the center as well. But if they stand out, they are definitely part of a multitude
"Bouillie" in French means something bland and easily gullible!
Signed "STOP" in the plate. test at the back.
In the light of the recent diplomatic events, this is a remarkable 19th Century historical cartoon, with outstanding artistic qualities, and worthy of any collection!

MEASUREMENTS: Length: 11". Width: 9".
Will be shipped "Registered" Airmail from Paris, including insurance, online tracking (Europe, US, Canada) and signature at delivery.
