It ends with the murder of the son and the suicide of the daughter. The first panel depicts Hogarth's painting number 1- The Marriage settlement & the other depicting painting number 2 entitled ' The tete a tete' both dated about 1743. These two pictures have a floral patterned band up the front side leading to a unknown coat of arms that are not on the original paintings.-WEIGHT 10KG - 2300
