Ultimate gentleman's liquor tantalus and gaming box!! 1850's, the most complete I have ever seen. Beautiful oak box from London with brass accents and handles. I will try to describe it in detail the best that I can, but please feel free to ask questions or photos of something in more detail. I have had that box for about 10 years and other than the cards (which are handmade replicas from Williamsburg VA).
