An important mahogany Regency period wine cooler with a shaped top. Cantered corners with reeded decoration on very strong shaped legs ending in original massive shoes and castors. Of the finest quality and no doubt made for an important house.
Wine-coolers and Cellarettes were widely used from the 18th century & throughout the 19th century for chilling wine. They tend to be wooden, often mahogany or oak strengthened with brass bands to the outer edge, and lead-lined with a bung to release melted ice.
