A late Victorian coromandel three-bottle tantalus, having a hinged front opening to a compartmented interior over a further concealed drawer and before the mirrored back fitted to hold three cut glass decanters, the whole was applied brass fittings and strap work, 13.5 (34 cm) long. Together with a set of three modern silver bottle labels, each having a grapevine rim and engraved for brandy, gin and whisky, hallmarked Birmingham 1990.
The tantalus appears in overall fair condition with few knocks and wear to the brass fittings and further knocks and scratches to the edges. The bottles are each in fair condition although with few small chips and one is slightly smaller than the others. The concealed drawer appears to be stuck and cannot open. The labels are in fair condition with general light wear and tarnishing.
