This is a rather unique put-together set, the old original hand carved & large Black Forest liqueur chest (sans original lift-out service tray) dates c.1850-1900, and still has all 4 complete and undamaged panels of wheel-engraved glass. It makes a nice vitrine for display of something other than its original intended contents, that missing tray and liqueur set. But it also is being offered here with a French lift-out liqueur service set by noted glass maker, Georges Sand, (Paris), which would have been a stand-alone from the same era. They actually do work nicely together, and if you've always wanted one of these glass-paneled wood chests to use as a vitrine for other things, this might be the perfect one to buy. Up top it has a cartouche with basket, bird, fruit carved into the oval. The outer vitrine box is in very good condition, really. Would that we had a spare set of the inner glassware to match the windows of it, and the matching wooden tray they'd fit into. But here it is - see what you might make of it as offered. Far below market, if you can use it.
Very good condition for age and type. The glassware shown (gold) does go with the Black Forest chest, and it has all but 2 of its original 12 liqueur cups, and the 2 decanters. There are no stoppers with the glass set, but otherwise no loss or damage to existing glass pieces in their Napoleon III era caddy. The outer BF chest has no breaks, no cracks, no lost nor damaged glass and is in very pretty condition as you see it. Large at 16" wide, 14" tall and 12" deep. Glassware shown would, priced separately, be $395. If you want just the chest, we can work that out, based on full-price ratios.
