Oak Three-bottle Tantalus, probably England, late 19th century, shaped sides above the drawer fitted for three colorless glass bottles with many-faceted stoppers, each bottle with a Staffordshire liquor tag, overall ht. 13 1/4, wd. 16 1/2, dp. 6 1/2 in.

There are very minor chips and wear to the bottles. The bottles and stoppers appear original to box; One stopper has probably been ground down; the box is in good condition; there is no key; the drawer slides nicely.
