Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Bacchus is the name the Romans gave to the Greek God Dionysus. Bacchus was the God of wine, festivity and ecstasy. He was usually followed by a procession of maenads, a group of (usually intoxicated) wild women and satyrs, males with goat-like characteristics.
Once the tantalus is unlocked the lock mechanism can be pressed down to release the handle and allow it to pivot so the decanters can be removed.
This tantalus comes with a fully working lock and tasselled key.
More information on Tantaluses can be found on our history page.
