Condition


This antique silver wine cooler is a magnificent and superior gauge of silver, magnificent quality and in magnificent presentation condition.

The chased and cast decoration is very sharp and the engraved heraldry is crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the collet rim of the body and part hallmarks to liner and cover are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply and sharply due to the exceptional gauge of silver.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique Georgian silverware.
