Circa 1860, unusual amboyna and metal inlaid decanter box. The rectangular box has a double brass inlaid top with a design panel to the centre with brass and coloured enamels. The top on the front is hinged and opens to reveal 16 glasses and 4 decanters. The sides of the decanter box are hinged, swinging open and the glasses are mounted on small walnut brackets. The 4 decanters sit on a slightly recessed section with brass inlay and wood separating dividers, and there are 2 removable slides. There are 2 styles of glasses in the decanter box. The double brass inlay continues around the sides and it stands on a raised, enclosed ogee-shaped plinth. Beneath this there is a small half round beading and a further small block.
