Object Literature

Most wine coolers hold one single bottle and have a detachable liner and rim. They usually have handles because the condensation can make the outside very slippery. The earliest silver wine coolers are very rare and date back to circa 1700.

Object Condition

These stunning bottle holders are in very good condition. All stamped with matching English silver hallmarks. The ornament has crisp detail. The buckets are stamped number 1 and 2. The canopies are stamped number 3 and 4.
