Description

Antique Betjeman tantalus made of solid Walnut with silvered corner brackets, handle, lock mechanism and makers plaque.
The maker’s plaque reads: “Finnigan Manchester”.

The Betjeman lock requires the key to be pressed into the sprung lock whilst turning to unlock. Then the small tab under the lock can be pressed downwards which allows the handle of the tantalus to be folded forwards or backwards to release the three hobnail cut decanters with faceted stoppers.

The handle is marked on each end with “Betjemann’s Patent 43405 London” and “The Tantalus”.
