Now here's a jolly fellow, and rightfully so, as he sits on a barrel of wine with cup in hand. Perhaps he is "in his cups". He looks quite pleased with himself; he is after all quite well modeled and painted. Made of the white Staffordshire clay created by adding heated ground flint powder. He's in excellent shape, without cracks or chips or excessive crazing. Some wear as expected to his cold paints but very little for his age. How does Bacchus forever keep his youth? Is he preserved by the wine? He measures 6 and 3/4 inches tall. A truly amusing early figure!
