Print shows a fashionably dressed woman standing at left; she wears a large feather-trimmed hat on her puffed-out air. The projecting gauze at her breast is arranged as a fichu, and worn with a nosegay. Her hands are in a large muff; her petticoats project behind, but not extravagantly. She is accompanied by a man at right, who holds his cocked hat in his left hand; his hair is much frizzed out at the sides, and he wears a high-collared cut-away coat, fastened by two large buttons, a revival of a fashion of 1777. Cf. George.
