About this work

Description

Leaflet or magazine insert or leaflet advertising Mellin's Food for infants (to be fed to them in cow's milk). The illustration (printed in sepia tones over black line) shows 12 naked babies sitting around a dinner table on stools drinking what may be either Mellin's Food or wine from glasses. One baby is wearing a monocle. A previous advertisement for Mellin's Food (a baby sitting on a crescent moon : EPH637A:10) is hanging on the wall behind them in a frame.
