Fabulous Antique Sp Tantalus W/3 Cut Glass Decanters Gazelle Feet Snail Handles

Gorgeous Antique Silver Plate

TANTALUS &3 CUT GLASS BOTTLES

PRISM CUT ROUND STOPPERS

Gazelle Decorated Feet

Snail Decorated Handles

From a Connecticut Estate sale comes this Fabulous Antique FANCY ENGRAVED SILVER PLATE TANTALUS with THREE GORGEOUS CUT GLASS DECANTERS & PRISM CUT GLASS STOPPERS.

Standing 13 1/2” tall to the top of the two suitcase handles, this is 13 1/4” wide and about 6 3/4” front-to-back at the curved feet. I don't get these very often and have to say that this is the nicest I've ever had.

As shown, the top opens up to access the three extensively cut bottles

which are topped by round prism cut stoppers.

As shown, both the top and base of the carrier are decorated with tiny ball gadrooning

but the real charmer here is that the feet are decorated with gazelles

while the handles are decorated with snails.

The attention to detail is such that the middle bottle is a tiny bit shorter than the other two to allow this to snap closed at the top.

The bottoms of the bottles have a ray or sunburst design and the taller two are about 9 3/8” to the top of the stoppers whereas the middle bottle is about 9 1/8” tall. The bottles weigh between 2 ½ and 2 ¾ pounds each and the whole unit weighs in at about 15 pounds. The top opens and closes securely although I don't have the key to lock it at the top.

It has wonderful decoration on both sides and an un-monogrammed shield on each side at the base. The one thing this doesn't have is a maker's mark and I have been similarly frustrated with other pieces of similarly spectacular silver plate...they obviously didn't care who was going to looking at it a hundred or so years hence. Although my best guess is that it is late 1800's to early 1900's English, please buy it for what you think it is. As one would expect, the jars have minor chips at the base from having been removed and replaced in the holder for over one hundred years. I don't see or feel any chips on the faceted portions of the stoppers although there is a very minor chip or two on the bottoms of two of the stoppers.

As shown, the interior compartments where the bottles fit are clean.

All of my silver has been lightly polished for its photo shoot but can always benefit from additional polishing. Please see my listings for an eclectic selection of other vintage and antique items.

I apologize for the number of pictures in this listing but I wanted to make sure I did this justice.
