Large Decanter box unmistakingly by “George Betjemann Son” oozes quality through out, veneered in beautiful feathered Walnut to really enhance the figure of the wood. Not seen this arrangement before and we have handled a few over the years, but this one having tumblers, spirit glasses and a wonderful claret decanter between two spirit decanters. Quite unique.
With a simple brass barrel escutcheon, two flush fitting carry handles on opposite sides, and a brass shield-shaped initial plate with the words “Durham House”.
Lifting the domed lid allows the two doors to the front to be swung open. This reveals a rich purple silk velvet-lined interior veneered with exotic coromandel. Each door has two brass gilded holders with glass sherry goblets. The base of the box has four more brass gilded holders each containing a glass tumbler.
The center of the box has three lined compartments occupied by glass decanters. The two outer are spirit decanters with star-cut bases and faceted stoppers. The middle decanter is a beautifully shaped claret decanter with matching faceted stopper.
At the very back of the box is a removable engraved bronze gilded serving tray. One the back edge of the open box is a small retailers plaque that reads: “Charles Henry. Manchester“.
This fabulous Betjemann decanter box comes complete with a fully working bramah lock and tasselled key.
