Though the title is in Dutch, the writing on the bottles are in French and reference the French reign of terror. The cartoon is one of a series in the book "Hollandia Regenerata" by David Hess (1771-1843), published in 1797. The images satirize the Batavian Repblic and the French relationship with the Dutch.
