A wonderful find...a very early campaign liquor chest, or travelling bar. Ebonized wood, muffin feet, gilt decorative lines, brass keyhole escutcheon and unengraved brass plaque on the top. Inside, a set of 6 early etched cordials, plus another in a different pattern. Just a beautiful, beautiful campaign liqueur cabinet, dating to the early 19th century. Condition is good with no apologies. Pieces like this are rare as the teeth of hens. Repair work is in evidence, and as seen in our picture, lacquered pieces are missing on the back. T are a few surface scratches on the exterior and one dime-sized missing lacquer piece on the back bottom corner, which is an extension of damage to the back. Some gilt missing from lines. The box is sturdy, secure and completely functional. The sides of the bar extend easily and slide easily back in place. On the interior, t are fittings for 16 cordials, 7 of which are present, and 4 bottles. The interior is in good condition. The glasses are in lovely condition, without a scratch or blemish. The engraved pattern is swag with plume or stylized bird in flight. Cordials measure 3 1/4" high; campaign box itself is 10 1/2"T X 12"W X 8 3/4"D in closed position. Questions? Email anytime!
