This adorable vintage clip art illustration features a young Victorian girl reaching for a treat from a table that is set for a tea party or lunch. I think the little girl is planning to share with her cat because she has placed one of the small plates on the floor beside him. The cat is watching the girl closely, anticipating anything tasty that may come from the table.
The image is from the June 1904 issue of The Delineator magazine.
