The tradition of offering guests an aperitif ahead of dining - both social and to heighten the pleasure of the meal, these quaint liqueur caddies are often quite inventive and are a decorator item that works well in office, den, living room, or bedroom. A stack of antique books, hollowed and fitted to hold 2 small decanters and, in this case, 5 jigger cups or French aperitif timbale, looking for all the world like a simple stack of leather bound old books, opens to reveal itself. We love these, and can never keep them in inventory. This one will go fast. Real antique books top and bottom and facsimile books that look antique in center, it's beautifully fitted out and beautifully preserved. Vintage make. Full measurements noted on the photos.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type, this is vintage made with antique real French leather bound books. The hinge is prevented from over-opening by a catch bar, so it displays extra nicely while you serve your guests. Closed, it's a perfect side table accent - put a pair of antique glasses on top, or something of your collections. The glassware is complete and without any flaws. Just in from France.
