- "A collection of antiques, real or faked, Egyptian and classical. A buxom young woman opens a hinged mummy-case (left) to embrace a handsome young officer in regimentals who stands within it. An aged man crouching down (right) glares at them through an eye-glass in frenzied malevolence. Another mummy has a realistic head, and there is a life-like statue of an Egyptian wearing a head-dress and loin-cloth. There are also a satyr and smaller figures of Egyptian gods. On the wall are grotesque satyrs' masks and on a high shelf are Greek or Etruscan vases. On the ground is a book: 'Loves of the Gods Embelld with Cuts'."--British Museum online catalogue.
