Christian is a 19th century French tantalus / liquor cabinet
Stunning antique wooden original liquor cabinet with boulle marquetry detail of fleur de lis and leaf scrolling.
He is raised on four bun feet
his bevelled serpentine front lid lifts up and locks in an open position. To close you squeeze the the double metal hinge on the left hand side while slowly lowering the lid.
His sides open out to reveal the removable beautiful brass holder or decanter and glasses which has a wooden base.
Christian is in good antique condition, there is overall wear to parts of his inlay consistent with age and use, some small pieces of wood and inlay have broken off or are slightly damaged on very close inspection. But over all his high quality finish is still evident.
Christian is still fully usable, to add various sized thin stem liquor glasses. The decanter space also fits nicely for 4 whisky tumblers especially as a small mini bar.
