A pair of fine antique Old Sheffield Plate wine or champagne coolers with engraved Coat of Arms.
The urn shaped coolers have a stepped circular base, gadroon top edges, decorative handles along with two bands of applied floral and vine details. The coolers are in very good condition with normal wear to the copper mainly on the base. The silver is bright.
If you look closely at the pictures of the crest you will see a faint rectangular outline. This is where a sterling silver ingot has been placed to prevent the engraved coat of arms or initials from going thru into the copper core.
Excellent pair for the Old Sheffield Plate collector.
English, C 1820
Measurements; 9” high, 10” handle to handle, and 7 ¾” wide at top opening
Condition Report; Overall very good in accordance with age and use. Small dents to both. Wear to silver mainly on the base and some areas on the side. Liners are not removable. Once cooler has a faint rattle of something that is inside between the base and liner but is only heard when the cooler is given a good shake. This does not interfere with the use of look of the cooler.
