Antique 19thC English Victorian Burlwood Tantalus Casket Box + Crystal Decanters. Today we are delighted to offer for sale this wonderful antique Victorian tantalus decanter set! Referred to as a tantalus, this handmade latching cabinet is crafted of richly colored burlwood and features metal hinges, a locking mechanism (no key present), and dark blue velvet lining inside the lid. The lower front section is divided into 2 parts and swings open to reveal spots for up to 7 crystal or glass liquor glasses. A plate on the inner front section reads Chapman’s Patent No. The bottom is securely affixed with screws on the underside. This tantalus comes with one crystal glass to serve as a size example for replacements. In the back of the tantalus sits three square crystal decanters with geometric-cut crystal stoppers. Two of the stoppers have minor chips, one stopper has been broken and the chunk of crystal held in place with tape. This could easily be repaired with an epoxy. The decanters are marked with a CRD monogram, and the top of the tantalus has a metal piece engraved with D. Set presents well and is in good antique condition, with wear/scuffing and patina commensurate with age and use. Two of the decanters have minor chips, and the third has a large break (piece is accounted for and held in place with tape, could be fixed with epoxy). Wood case has minor wear, scuffing, and is missing three corner inlaid wood pieces. Please review all photos before purchasing.
