About

A truly exceptional tantalus made from solid English Oak with polished brass fittings.

The working lock has a key and once unlocked the outer barrel can be pressed down and the top bar moved backwards to allow access to the decanters. Late Victorian in era, and in excellent condition dating to the late Victorian, circa 1890. The footprint of the frame measures 11 3/4" x 5 1/2" and stands 14" tall to top of handle. Each decanter measures 4 1/4" x 2 7/8" x 11" tall. Item ID:39074 FREE Worldwide Registered Airmail Directly From London, England
