Favourite Item
Antique Tantalus has silver plated corner brackets, lock mechanism and sturdy carry handle. The handle is marked with:
The Tantalus, Betjemann's Patent 39577 London. The Tantalus frame is made from solid english walnut and contains three unusual fabulous lead crystal cut glass decanters with faceted stoppers.

The antique tantalus comes with a fully working lock and tasselled key.

When locking the Tantalus always try it first with the swing arm in the open position so you feel the tolerance of the lock.
To unlock, the key must be pressed into the lock and held whilst turning as the key barrel is sprung. Turning clockwise unlocks and anti clockwise locks.
Once unlocked you can then push down on the lever below the barrel. This will allow the swing arm to fold forwards or backwards to release the fabulous decanters.
