Why don’t you bring home a ‘liquor and police station’ souvenir from Amsterdam in traditional red, white and blue!? Not your typical souvenir! This barware set has a little Amsterdam boozin’ & cruisin’ history to it. The tile, with a Delfstblue-like transfer, shows the image of the former District 8 building; it was the Police station in the western part of Amsterdam. The longdrink glasses are 1970s vintage from Wynand Fockink which is a centuries old Dutch ‘Proeflokaal’ (Dutch for tasting tavern) The little glass boots are meant to drink genever from, we could imagine they are police-boots though!

Tip from Mrs Jack: Visit Wynand Fockink, the bar at the Pijlsteeg in Amsterdam. Wynand Fockink  started a liqueur distillery around 1679. Nowadays liqueurs and genevers (Dutch gin) are still being made using the same 17th century traditional craft methods.

Exactly what you get: 1 ceramic tile (pottenbakkerij ‘t Spinnenwiel, Amsterdam) /2 longdrink glasses with advertising for the Wynand Fockink distillery (1979) / 2 shot glasses shaped like boots / 1 ceramic jar with a face in 1970s style. All items are vintage


Please contact Mrs Jack for more information or to order. (At the moment also available at the Mini Shopping Center of Cool store, in Amsterdam.)
