Description

Walnut Tantalus with three Hobnail cut crystal glass decanters. The walnut frame is beautifully inlaid with sweeping symmetrical flowers with the sides having matching Urns.

This tantalus features a fixed silver plate carry handle, so it is opened via a forward sliding mechanism which opens by pressing the key into the spring loaded lock and turning it clockwise. Once this is done the front and decanters will slide forward like a drawer allowing the decanters to be lifted out.

This tantalus comes with a fully working lock and tasseled key.
