Menzies ‘Washer Women’, Mulready Caricature

Menzies ‘Washer Women’ envelope. Showing Britannia as a washer woman despatching her messengers, plus a 'Man of Letters’ and other references to China and Turkey. Very fine & unused original.

The 1840 Mulready was ridiculed by contemporaries for its overly elaborate design and many caricature envelopes were produced by publishers including Fores', Spooner, Southgate, and Menzies. Their ridicule proved so effective that it was decided to stop producing the Mulready just two months after its release.
