Description / Expertise

Antique Mahogany Tantalus with inlaid oval fan inlays on each side.
With two half hobnail cut glass decanters secured by the silver-plate handle.

To release the decanters the tantalus needs to be unlocked, then the lock mechanism can be pushed down towards the base. Whilst pressed this will allow the handle to be pivoted forwards or backwards. Once the handle is pivoted the decanters can easily be removed.

This tantalus comes with a fully working lock mechanism and tasselled key.

Mahogany is the name given to many types of tropical hardwood and can be found in Africa, India and South America, most of which are a red-brown colour with a fine, even grain. This makes it easily workable and gives it a durable finish which attributes to its popularity with many kinds of furniture.
