Oil painting on wood panel (possibly Bristol school), c.1800s-1850s

Naughty yet beautiful mid 19th century oil painting on a wood panel of two women in underclothes teasing a man who is about to enter. One woman stands on a chair with a white pitcher which she is about to pour onto the man, and the other woman stands behind her. Man wears an apron and tam. Room is painted to look worn and working class. Similar in style to the Bristol school in England (Edward Bird, etc.). Heavy lacquer over the painting looks original. Wood panel consists of joined boards, as seen in cabinetry. Condition of painting is very good with exception of one small chip in the center. Dimensions are 8 7/8 x 10 1/2 inches. Most likely from the United Kingdom.
