Antique games decanter box with brass mounts, handles and escutcheon. Veneered in exotic Rosewood with beautiful floral marquetry on the front top and sides. The three magnificent decanters and drawer at the front are held in place while the box is closed & locked position.

Using the Bramah key to unlock the entertainment box causes the two bevelled glazed doors to spring up allowing them to be opened, this also releases the sprung locking pin for the games drawer. The large crystal-cut decanters now have enough room to be tipped forwards and removed, along with the four matching spirit glasses and any Cigars kept in the cedar-lined central compartment.

Opening the drawer at the front of the box reveals its luxurious solid Satinwood interior containing several games, comprising a cribbage board, natural and red stained bone counters, one full deck of cards and one stripped deck with rule cards for the games: “De La Rue, Co’s Whist and Bezique”.

This games tantalus box has its original Bramah key. To unlock push into the barrel of the lock and keep the pressure on and turn clockwise, then the glazed doors will spring up. Very important to make sure you don’t place the key inside these compartments. To lock it again all you need to do is push down on the glazed doors.

A magnificent eye catching Games Tantalus perfect for the dinner party.
