Fashioned in the elegant style of the early 19th century, this antique, silver-plated stand houses three cut glass decanters. Each of the bottles features a cut ball stopper, pouring spout on the lip and diamond cutting on the shoulder. The tantalus is in rectangular form with a swing handle and ball feet and displays beaded details. A useful storage and serving piece for a bar, it also is a very beautiful accessory.
