  • About

    A street vendor has on his back a large metal canister with a pipe which runs round to his front from which he can fill a glass. The figure probably belongs with the series of street vendors modelled by Joseph Nees at Zurich after his move from Ludwigsburg (compare L2012.197, L2012.196).
