Original copper printing plate, etched on both sides by Thomas Rowlandson (1756-1827). The prints are titled and dated: 'Disturbers of Domestic Happiness', London, c.1790 and 'Miseries of London or a Surly Saucy Hackney Coachman.' London, June 4th 1814. Pictured here is 'Disturbers of Domestic Happiness' possibly a scene from a play. Three ruffians armed with pistols and daggers have broken into a lady's boudoir. While the woman and her child sprawl lifelessly on the elegant sofa, the bandits pull off her jewellery and rifle through her bureau, but they are disturbed by armed men with dogs who come pounding up the stairs.
