Description

Below the menu written on a piece of paper, a diminutive, impish creature with strangely braided hair pours acid from a bottle into a trough where a plate is being retouched by a similar creature holding a burin. The acid fumes turn into flames, from which fish and poultry bones seem to rise.
The caption reads in the original French: Menu pour la Société des Aquafortistes.
