A short, soot-covered chimney-sweep embraces a tall, pretty kitchen maid who holds a spoon in her hand. His bag and brush are on the floor by the baking oven behind him. Another chimney-sweep, sitting in the cavity of the cold fireplace and chewing on bones, watches the pair. On the wall above the bake oven hang copper and brass pots and pans and a chopper and a ballad sheet; on the mantel above the fireplace are candesticks and a mortar and pestle
