A late 18thC travelling century spirit decanter set.

This beautiful set of decanters are housed in a mahogany case which is lavishly inlaid with Sheraton shell motifs and chevron borders and decorative brass escutcheon to the front. The interior is lined in original morocco leather with its fabric secure to avoid the lid falling back.

The square hand blown decanters are richly ornamented with gilded star and floral motifs to the shoulders and floral motifs to each stopper.

Spirit decanters of this quality and condition from this period are rare. The decanters themselves are invariably of European manufacture with many being imported in the mid-eighteenth century for inclusion in English cases for retail.

Note: there is one very small hairline crack in one of the decanters but it remains sturdy and watertight and does not affect it being put to use.

A very rare survivor and in super condition.

Circa 1785

An early Victorian campaign triple decanter set.

This robust set is comprised from beautifully patinated mahogany with brass bound edges and brass corner mounts. It has a flush mounted campaign handle to either side of the base edge and superbly crafted flush hinges.

The case is opened by means of a quality Bramah patent sprung lock which is stamped with “Bramah Patent under crown motif and with the queen Victoria stamp, the signature feature of all quality boxes of this period. Both the lid and the sectioned base are lined with a lavish silk velvet.

The three large decanters are in superb condition with no chips or scratches to note and they come complete with their original flat faced mushroom type stoppers.
