Beautiful Antique English Oak Decanter Tantalus

$1,100per set

About

A very special three bottle crystal decanter tantalus executed with brass mounts on an oak platform. The latch mechanism functions as intended, and it has its original unusual cylinder brass lock and key. Another unusual feature of this tantalus is the way it is opened. The key opens and releases the top which pulls out and allows access to the three decanters.
