They sit in 4 identical chairs with tall backs. There is a table with a single square pedestal supporting the table top. On the table are 3 cups and one bottle. Each man is holding a card in his raised hand. The base is crossed mortised pieces of wood. On the ends of each piece are small cuts of wood used to keep the bottle tight against the edges of the bottle.
