|An amusing Folk Art watercolour showing two sailors smoking clay pipes observing on the ‘wonder’ of a lion and a tiger living ‘peaceable’ in the same cage. Their comments reflect the fact that sailors and marines (soldiers at sea) traditionally did not get on. ‘I say Jack I wonder what they’ll show next! I shouldn’t wonder if they weren’t next year to shew about a Sailor and a Marine living peaceable together!!’ The reply ‘Ah! Or a Man-and-Wife’. The lion and the tiger are very appealing and one of the Sailors sports some splendid offset ringlets. English, circa 1850.|
