An early 20th Century decanter box formed from adapted 19th century French leather bound books. The interior is fitted with a gilt decorated glass bottle and stamped 'The Brandy Of Napoleon'.
The decanter box is of very good proportions and of excellent quality. There is some wear commensurate with age to the book extremities but the exterior remains in a good condition overall. The glass bottle has some imperfections to the glass body and two hairline cracks to the neck (please see photographs) - fluid has been tested within the decanter and it remains functional with no leaks.
A very attractive piece with interesting provenance.
From the estate of the late three time Oscar-winning costume designer, Anthony Powell.
Anthony had an interesting range of films, from costume period films to more contemporary settings, working with an impressive list of directors such as Steven Spielberg, Roman Polanski, George Cukor and William Friedkin.
