Hogarth's Cottage[1] is an anonymous drawing formerly attributed to William Hogarth.

"Facsimile of a small circular drawing of the entrance to a cottage with a mountain behind, which can also be seen as a bawdy drawing of a naked woman seen in foreshortening, formerly claimed to be after a drawing by Hogarth in the possession of Samuel Ireland; lettered state. 1786" --British Museum[2]
Engraved by Mr. Campfield, a surgeon, on a breeches button, the size of a half crown. Mr. Standly has the original print, impression of which are very rare. It was published long before 1786. A very bad copy, "from the original design in the posession of Sam. Ireland, was published March 1, 1786, by Dickinson, No.158, New Bond Street." Anecdotes of William Hogarth, by William Hogarth
