13x11x11" One of the more amazing pieces i've ever owned. Shipboard Tantalus or brandy service owned by Leopoldo Carvajal, the Marquis de Pinar del Rio. (Marquess of the Pines of the River) The Marquis, an administrator for the Spanish Crown, in the Pinar del Rio region, was a Senator in the Cuban Government, & was also the owner of Plaza Hotel,one the finest hotels in Havana at the turn of the century. See, /Havana_hotel_history.htm
He purports to have been instrumental in developing the tobacco/cigar industry in the Pinar region, where the finest tobaccos in the world are grown. Acquired in Miami from a elderly Cuban widow who only knew it came from an "ancestor of my husband" It has been appraised by Lee Young, of Freemans Auction in Philadelphia, Americas oldest auction house, & was featured on The Antiques Road Show in January, 2nd hour. Both Lee & I think it of Spanish origin. It is Baroque inlaid, trimmed with mother of pearl, some possible ivory, & bronze mounted. The serving tray is of solid silver, (less than sterling) the service is crystal & engraved with the Marquis coat of arms. One glass has been replaced. Beside some minor touching up, it is in quite amazing original condition. In December of 1898, just months after the sinking of the Maine in Havana Harbor, a crowd forced the Marquis to publicly declare his loyalty to a free Cuba.
