This tantalus table, a receptacle for holding a decanter, is a folly of a piece. The base is decorated with three frolicking, fully carved wooden bears surmounted by a sculptural carved tree trunk with exposed roots. Baluster stem floral-etched glass goblets with flared rims are suspended from the tree roots. At the center, rising in the place of the tree trunk, is a glass decanter with ball-form stopper etched with an edelweiss pattern. The bears are carved in a riotous style and one holds a beer stein in the paw, a lighthearted allegorical tribute to the effects of all spirits.
Height:- 45.5cm from the base to the top of decanter, 31cm to the top of the wood alone. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
