Fabulous & rare vintage French "leather bound books" liqueur or liquor box, cave a liqueur or tantalus with gold embossed crown & fleur-de-lis medallion on top, two gold accented decanters & five shot sized cups or glasses inside and working music box! A sweet little desktop or side table book stack opens to reveal itself as a liqueur caddy. This is a vintage set, not quite as old as the previous few we've been lucky to find and offer.  All five books are antique leather bound looking with the leaves or pages individual and hollowed out to create the tantalus you see here. We've had a number of these over the years. Some visible wear to the leather edges of the volumes but it adds to the overall visual appeal in my opinion. The gilt embossed leather bindings have titles such as "Vie De St Francois De Sales", Richepin's "Miarka" and Moliere's "Comedies". The original Swiss Thorens music box in the base plays "Invitation a la Valse" or "Invitation to the Dance" by Carl Maria Von Weber.  Just in from France, a wonderful one and guaranteed to please.

Very good condition for age and type. There are no flaws to the glass other than a bit of visible cloudiness inside the decanters (I didn't try to clean them out so it may just be a faint residue). The outer cave, caddy, is very appealing but does have some edge wear and surface marks, etc.. The original brass hinge is intact and undamaged. Measurements are noted on the photos but it is 8 3/4" x 5 7/8" at base, and 5 5/8" tall, closed. Love these on a side table.
