A not so nice cuppa

In an old scrapbook from 1901 I just found this two-part advert for Ridgways tea. The gentleman is enjoying a refreshing cup of tea:

You can lift his cup up and down by sliding the flap.

Unfortunately, midway, the unintended effect is that he is vomiting into the cup. Still, much fun to be had!

Oh dear! A little too much Ridgways, perhaps?
