A very elegant & virtually untouched George III period wine cooler, for storing cool whites on ice, with a bung hole to the base. Of tight oval form, the flat top with a good patina, handy as a wine table in itself. In wonderful heavy Cuban mahogany, with brass brass bindings & original ogee lug handles to the ends, on original tapering leg stand & trail casters.
[Wine coolers, as distinct from wine cellarettes, are usually for iced wines & champagne, the undivided interior zinc lined & with a corked bunghole to the base. Cellarettes are usually divided for 6 or 12 bottles, usually reds or unchilled fortifieds & without a bunghole for ice/ water.] UK origin c1800. 69cm H x 53cm W x 48cm D
