Regency 19th Century Burr Elm Cellarette

Regency 19th Century Burr Elm Cellarette (England, circa 1835)


An Exceptionally Rare Regency Period Burr Elm Cellarette,
Or Wine Cooler, Of Sarcophagus Form Having Lift Up
Lid With Original Brass Hinges And Rich Foliate Carved
Decoration Standing On Original Tablet Feet

(Cellarettes, often referred to as Wine Coolers, first started
appearing as early as the 15 century in Europe. However they
became far more widely used throughout the 18th and 19th
centuries. They use was for storage of alcoholic beverages and
more often than not they would have a substantial lock and
key to ensure the beverages didn’t go walkabouts in the
wrong hands. Sometimes they were built as part of a dining
room set to match a sideboard and serving table and other
times they were made simply as standalone pieces of furniture.
This one was certainly made as a standalone piece of furniture
and is by far the nicest we have ever owned. Every last detail
is quite simply exceptional and it has clearly been made in
one of the most prominent workshops of the age. The burr
elm veneers themselves would have been exceptionally
expensive to purchase, before you even begin to take into
account the levels of craftsmanship involved in the carving,
the incredible bold sarcophagus shape and the overall
quality of construction. Quite the showstopper this piece
will be a focal point of just about any room and is something
one will never grow tired of admiring and using)
