**$.99 STARTING offer AND **
I AM A GLASS COLLECTOR AND CAME INTO THIS ANTIQUE. I AM NOT FAMILIAR WITH ANTIQUES MADE OF WOOD. I TOOK IT TO AN ANTIQUE DEALER WHO DOES APPRAISALS. HE SAID THAT THE TANTALUS DATES PRE-1900 AND IS EITHER FRENCH OR RUSSIAN. HE SAID THAT HE WOULD DO EXTENSIVE RESEARCH AND AN APPRAISAL FOR A PRICE, BUT WAS OK WITH GIVING HIS EDUCATED OPINION FOR FREE.IT IS AN ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS ANTIQUE AND ISIN AMAZING CONDITION. I WILL ADD A GENEROUS AMOUNT OF PHOTOS.
DESCRIPTION: THE PHOTOGRAPHS INSIST ON MAKING THE TANTALUS APPEAR TO BE GLOSSY. THE FINISH IS MORE OF A FURNITURE SATIN, ETC. THE TANTALUS IS MADE OF WOOD AND LEATHER INLAY. IT ALSO HAS A MUSIC BOX THAT PLAYS WHEN THE DOOR IS OPEN (LOWERED). I OBVIOUSLY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE TUNE IS THAT IT PLAYS. THE MUSIC BOX DOES NOT ALWAYS PLAY (PUSH AND RELEASE THE PROD).
CONDITION: THE CONDITION IS GREAT! IT DOES NOT APPEAR TO HAVE HAD ANY PREVIOUS RESTORATION. THE BOX IS VERY SOUND AND STURDY. THE LEATHER HAS NOT HARDENED OR FADED. THE LEATHER DOES HAVE SOME OLD SCUFFS THAT I WILL SHOW IN THE PHOTOS. THE NUT ON THE PULL HAS BEEN UPDATED. THE DECANTER AND GLASSES ARE IN PRISTINE CONDITION AND APPEAR TO BE PRESSED GLASS (EAPG). THE ANTIQUE DEALER ALSO STATED THAT THE GLASS APPEARED TO BE THE QUALITY OF A TOP GLASS PRODUCER. THE STOPPER FOR THE DECANTER APPEARS TO FIT TOO LOOSE BUT HE SAID THAT ORIGINALLY THE STOPPER WOULD HAVE HAD A CORK SPACER TO KEEP THE DECANTER FROM CHIPPING OR WEARING AND THAT THE CORK MATERIAL CAN BE REPLACED. THERE APPEARS TO BE A SEPARAATION IN THE END (SHOWN IN PHOTO #5. BUT IT IS STURDY AND IS MOST LIKELY SHRINKAGE FROM AGE.
MEASUREMENT: THE TANTALUS (BOX) STANDS 9" TALL X 8.25" ACROSS THE FRONT AND IS 5" DEEP. THE DECANTER STANDS 5" TALL. THE GLASSES STAND 2.5" TALL.
I GUARANTEE SATISFACTION: IF YOU RECEIVE THE ITEM AND FEEL THAT IT IS NOT AS DESCRIBED I WILL GLADLY GIVE A REFUND UPON ITS RETURN. I PACKAGE TIGHTLY USING PEANUTS AND BUBBLE WRAP. I STRIVE TO MAINTAAIN A 5 STAR RATING. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE CALL ME AT 509-591-1483,
