Likely originally used at a bistro in the 1800s, this charming pack mule or donkey boasts an impressive ensemble. Adorned with a gilt ormolu* pack saddle, it carefully balances one liqueur barrel and eight service cups or cordials. The spigot operates allowing the barrel to be used and has the capacity to hold approximately a pint of your favorite liqueur. The weighted and expansive copper-brass base ensures a stable stance. Add a bit of history to your gatherings and set the stage for an unforgettable dinner party by bringing out this whimsical piece alongside your aperitifs.
*Ormolu is the technique of applying an amalgam of copper and zinc used to imitate gold to an object of bronze.
