Object Description

A Very Good Quality Regency Period Mahogany Open Wine
Cooler Having Ebonized Greek Key Inlaid Decoration And
Superb Original Brass Lions Mask Handles Raised On
Original Stand With Elegant Original Turned Tapering
Legs Retaining Original Brass Castors.

( Its quite difficult to find good quality antique wine coolers
like this which retain their original stands as many of them have
been removed and placed on dining tables etc over the years
only for the stand to disappear into a different room or storage
area never to be seen again. So the fact that it retains its original
stand is of course a most highly desirable feature. The stand itself
is very elegant and even retains its original brass castors.
The interior lining of the actual cooler is not original. It would have
been lead, or zinc, originally and is now replaced by a form of vinyl
but we are unsure exactly what material it is. Certainly however this
lining would be sufficient to use the piece as a for displaying flowers,
plants or similar and should one wish to revert back to the items
original purpose it shouldn’t be too difficult to have a metal liner custom
made to slip inside it.)
