A magnificent, fine and impressive antique Georgian English sterling silver wine cooler made by Henry Chawner; an addition to our antique wine and drink related silverware collection
This magnificent antique George III sterling silver wine cooler has a circular rounded form onto a shaped circular spreading foot.
The surface of the cooler is embellished with exceptional chased floral and scrolling foliate decoration, all on a matte background.
The decoration to the body incorporates a large scroll bordered cartouche to either side, each ornamented with a contemporary engraved coat of arms depicting firstly a chevron charged with three lions passant guardant, secondly in chief three cross-crosslet and to the base a lion passant.
This antique wine cooler is fitted with an exceptional pair of cast silver handles realistically modelled in the form of an eagle with raised wings, perched on a large scrolling leaf design.
This impressive cooler is supported by a cast circular shaped spreading foot embellished with further floral and foliate decoration, accented with a large scrolling border to the rim.
This exceptional Georgian wine cooler retains the original, hallmarked detachable liner and push fit cover.
The cast sterling silver torus-shaped cover is ornamented with large floral and foliate designs, with an opposing scrolling border paralleling the shaped rim.
The surface of the lining is plain and unembellished, apart from the featured hallmarks.
This magnificent antique silver wine cooler, made by the renowned London silversmith Henry Chawner, is the finest of its type you could hope to acquire.
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.
