Product Description

A satire on a Jewish Locksmith and a sailor being cuckolded. The illustration shows an eldery Jewish Locksmith opening the padlock to a front door whilst beside him is the owner a sailor with a basket of food on his head who is waiting for the door to be opened.. In the background a naval officer is helping a pretty young lady out of a window onto a ladder. She is presumably the sailors girl. Above the Jew in the wall is a corbel also in the shape of a Jewish head. BM. No. 10484
