Peter Arno's Lost Horse

A set of cocktail napkins designed by Peter Arno was offered on eBay in 2013. There are seven napkins here; presumably one has been lost. It seems a horse has been lost as well, but perhaps not irrecoverably. Both the drawing and the caption seem a bit simple, but the overall style is recognizably Arno's. Similar cocktail napkins were issued in other designs and colors, generally celebrating the aftereffects of alcohol.

A few others from the series were sold by an etsy store.

Note:  An entirely different set of Peter Arno cocktail napkins may be seen on Ink Spill.

Even if you haven't seen a horse, maybe you've seen these posts about Peter Arno.
