Two designs on one plate, divided by the first title (Mock turtle). The first design shows the profiles of an ugly, elderly couple (he has a large carbuncular or bulbous nose) sticking out their tongues to touch; between them is a large bowl and above their heads two doves bill on a branch. The second design below, titled 'Puff paste', is an image of a fat cook, smiling contentedly, rolling out puff paste, while a hideous footman caresses her. To the left of the pastry on the table-top is a bowl of apples labeled 'Codling tart'; to the right, a bag labeled 'Apple Dumpling' and a tied bag labeled 'Batter Pudding' in a bowl
