These Tantalus Sets Were Originally Made For The Homes of The Gentry During Georgian & Victorian Times. Such Elegance Was Always Found in The Homes of The Aristocratic/Bourgeoisie. These always were made with a lock and key in order that the servants did not get into the booze. If not found on the dining room sideboard, such a set would be found in the library such that the gentlemen after having fashionably dined would abode to the library for a little cognac or sherry and a good cigar as their lady counterparts would abode to the drawing room or music room to discuss perhaps embroidery or other typical lady-like things of the Victorian era.

I have had a life long interest in Photography anything that moves me… as well as interests in spirituality, new to writing, the internet, and sharing my love of beauty, as I see it. I’ve owned Pentax cameras since 1969, a die hard Pentax believer!
I will be moving to new digs, 29 Dec 2011 Maple, Ontario; the basement of a house, can’t get any lower..a far cry from my lofty 22nd floor apt., of a few years ago!
