The Tantalus contains three superb lead crystal hobnail cut glass decanters with faceted stoppers and star cut bases. Each compartment holding the decanters is lined in Satinwood.

"Mappin & Webb sheffield. 158 to 162 Oxford St & Mansion House Build 9st London"

On the back of the tantalus is a coat of arms with the words "Je Les Maintiendrai" (I will Maintain). This is the motto used by ruling dutch families.

The Decanters can be removed by pressing the the lock barrel down which will allow the carrying handle to be pivoted forwards or back. The carrying handle is stamped with the following: "Betjemanns Patent 34538 London" "The Tantalus"
