Description

A four bottle tantalum dated to the period of George 111 circa 1800. The silver plate on copper (Sheffield plate) tantalum of a square form raised on ball feet has a looped frame to hold the cut glass decanters with additional small loops for the stoppers; rising from the centre is the ergonomically formed loop handle. The four square formed hand blown decanters with ground pontil bases are of a diminutive size having pouring lips and cut shoulders; with their original faceted cut glass stoppers. All the glass has the inclusions expected of aged glass with signs of wear but no signs of damage or blooming with the stoppers working perfectly on the quarter turn. The base has no maker’s marks; this is not unusual for a piece of this period it is however is a rare survivor of the days of elegance, a beautiful example.
