  WHAT O'CLOCK IS IT?, 1888. Witthoft 49. Signed and numbered (38) in the plate. Witthoft has identified the children as Smillie's son, James, age 3, with a friend. They are blowing dandelion seeds, an old children's game in which the remaining number of seeds tells the time of day. A fine impression of a charming scene in excellent condtiiton.
