Secret drink box from horse carriage

Secret drink box from horse carriage
France - First half 20th century - Wood, iron

Special antique liquor cabinet.
The cabinet is made of wood and the hatch is made of iron and beautifully decorated.
Used to secretly bring a drink in a horse-drawn carriage.
Two empty liquor bottles in the straw.
In the yellow bottle the famous Suc. de Monbazillac, Liqueur des Vieux Cep. (which would have supplied secret energy!).
In the black bottle, La Vieille Noix , a walnut eau-de-vie made by French producer Louis Roque. There's another remnant, which once leaked into the straw. To keep it original, the old straw is still in it.

This lot has been carefully cleaned, will be packaged with great care and sent by insured and registered mail (with Track and Trace code). May also be collected from us in Ridderkerk, South-Holland province in the Netherlands.
