La Baratteuse (Woman Churning). 1855. Etching. Delteil, Melot 10.i/iii. 6 3/4 x 4 3/8 (sheet 7 x 4 5/8). An extremely rare early printing, before the additional hatching on the wall and ground at right, and before the etched lines were stengthened and before Delâtre's address was added (in state iii). Described by Delteil as 'De tout rareté'. Printed on white wove paper. The impression was probably printed by Millet. Unsigned. $4,500.

The cat rubbing against the woman's dress adds a charming touch of domesticity.
