Medical charlatan. Caricature of medical charlatan Georges Fattet selling vials of a "cure-all" medicine. Next to Fattet is a man with his jaw in a bandage, and a musician to attract the crowds. Fattet is claiming to have travelled around the world to find this drug. One stage of its manufacture supposedly involves boiling the extracts of certain plants in carp urine for 122 years. He is claiming that it can cure dental problems, broken bones, and can even be used to stop hens from laying eggs. As an added incentive for potential buyers, he is offering the medicine at half price. Drawn by Georges Frison (born 1850).
