The story

This merry big man with his opened coat with floral designs, relaxes on a pouffe. These Delft bibbers were an example of fine craftsmanship. Delft fountains in the shape of potbellied men or women were meant to serve liquor from. Through a silver faucet the wine or cordial was tapped in the glasses.
