Showing a butcher with two rabbits. Pink tinting applied to butcher's face and hands. Housed in a period passe-partout mount with faux tortoiseshell design. Overall dimensions of mount 6 x 5 inches (15x12 cm).
 
An extremely unusual image of a French butcher preparing this tasty foodstuff. Despite numerous pet rabbit images, this image of a rabbit being prepared for food is the first such I have seen. In the 19th-century and earlier, animals (particularly small ones like rabbits) were killed much closer to the time of consumption. (Christopher Wahren)
