18th Century Oval Mahogany Wine Cooler (England, circa 1780)

£4,950.00

A fine quality late 18th century George III period Mahogany Oval Wine Cooler, or Cellarette.

Having very well figured hinged lid enclosing lead lined interior, with bottle divisions and brass bound decoration with original brass handles to outside.

Raised on elegant square tapered legs with original brass castors.

This wine cooler is a little bolder than we often find and also boasts exceptional quality and construction.

It retains its original brass bound decoration and handles and really is a great example for its type.

It is also slightly different to the norm in terms of being raised on fixed legs, as opposed to being housed on a detachable stand which is more commonly the case.

It also retains a wonderful rich, untouched colour and patina.

The lead lining is original as is the plug but it is very unlikely these remain watertight to this day due to the natural movement of the wood beneath over the course of many hundreds of years.

Should you wish to use it for it’s original purpose, it would be relatively easy and inexpensive to have a replacement liner made which could drop in over the top of the original one and be watertight.

Circa 1780.
