Coromandel Tantalus with Marquetry


Coromandel Tantalus with Marquetry

Rare Betjemann Tantalus with silver-plate handle and corner brackets, veneered in stunning Coromandel enhanced with beautiful symmetrical marquetry.

The antique tantalus has three hobnail cut glass decanters with faceted stoppers.

To release the bottles the tantalus must be first unlocked, then the lock barrel mechanism must be pressed downwards which will then allow the handle to be tilted either way.

This tantalus comes with a fully working lock and tasselled key. The key must be pressed into the sprung lock whilst turning to lock and unlock.
