Manor House 1707

A Harlequin Wedding

A harlequin is a clown or buffoon, meaning the boys are raging with hormones and the girls are fools who give them what they want. (on-line Urban Dictionary).

The character of Harlequin - or 'Arlecchino' - originated in the Commedia dell'arte, the improvised theatre of 16th-century Italy. He was a wily and unscrupulous servant whose clothes were covered in patches. His face was covered with a black half-mask which also had a bushy moustache and whiskery beard. (Google).
