Rare huge 15 3/4" tall antique French Victorian or Napoleon III era carousel style liqueur & cigar tantalus or presenter box, six rotating doors with gilt ormolu fixtures, liquor decanter & eight cordials or shot glasses! We've had this type of cigar presenter in the past, fitted inside the doors to hold cigars, etc. but this one is massive! Figural bas relief brass medallions on each door (except one that's gone missing). The way these work is you turn the finial on top and the doors rotate open or closed. The doors here do mostly rotate but a few tend to stick and need a little push. Gilt ormolu fixtures inside on all doors but a piece or two missing. It has one decanter now but fittings to hold two, all fittings and eight shot glasses are there though we can't say if any or all of them are original. A fabulous and rare piece, don't miss it.
Good to very good condition. As noted, there are a few small ormolu or brass fixture pieces missing from inside the doors and one figural plaque missing from one door. Also, noted above, some of the doors tend to stick. See pictures for all measurements.
