This is a superb antique Victorian coromandel cased three decanter tantalus and games compendium, C1880 in date.
It was skillfully crafted in rare coromandel with cut brass mounts, three cut crystal glass decanters with stoppers, a mirrored back and a twin lidded compartment with a Bramah lock, opening to reveal compartments for three glasses and playing cards, etc.
There is a secret base drawer with a pair of silver plated dishes, the original cribbage board, and playing cards. It can be opened by pressing the brass button which is just in front of the central decanter.
It is a decorative piece which is also very practical, and would make a lovely gift.
It is complete with the original working Bramah lock and key, which locks everything.
In excellent condition having been beautifully cleaned and waxed in our workshops, with only minor signs of use commensurate with age,please see photos for confirmation.
