Unique! Imagine our delight when we discovered this large heavily carved box, only to open it and find a tin liner, making this an early example of a wine cooler. Obviously intended for serving and displaying, it has been lavished with Renaissance inspired motifs on all exposed sides and the mansard-style top. Raised upon bun feet to protect the surface of the table or buffet from condensation, it has been framed with hand-carved molding on the lid and around the base.
Circa 1850-1860.
Measures 22 x 26.5 x 21.5.
