Description
Mappin & Webb - Antique Victorian Oak Tantalus 'The Cabinet' with 3 Decanters Cut Crystal and Glass
England - 1880 - Brass, Crystal, Glass

Antique Victorian tantalus made of oak with brass fittings containing three one litre decanters with original stoppers.

The plaque on the bottom front of the tantalus clearly states "'The Cabinet' registration 6299 17th June 1880 Mappin and Webb"

3 decanters.
The decanter on the right (refer to the 1st photo) with the flat stopper is cut crystal. The other 2 decanters are cut glass.

Unfortunately the lock is missing its key .
The decanters are removed from the case by sliding the whole of the base away from the tantalus, this then releases the decanters.

Total dimensions of the tantalus:
Height: 34cm to the top of the handle.
Width: 41cm
Length: 16cm (when the base/tray is tucked in)

Condition:
One screw in the handle is missing, though the tantalus is still sturdy when lifted.
There is a chip on the underside of the decanter in the middle, i have tried to show it in the photos.
The decanter on the right (with the round stopper) has a few very small chips in on the stopper.

Overall in good condition, particularly for its age. The tantalus is a bit dusty and would look excellent with a of of polish.

Please view the photos for further details!
