PET.  Why, this was moulded on a porringer;
A velvet dish; fye, fye! ’Tis lewd and filthy;
Why, ’tis a cockle or a walnut shell,
A knack, a toy, a trick, a baby’s cap;
Away with it, come, let me have a bigger.
  KATE.  I’ll have no bigger; this doth fit the time,
And gentlewomen wear such caps as these.
        Shakespeare.—Taming of the Shrew, Act IV. Scene 3.
