The Cooler is of an unusual size and must have been for the use of a half bottle. This piece is of exceptional quality, as would be expected from this partnership. The Cooler stands on a circular pedestal foot decorated with an unusual band of trailing acorns, oak leaves and poppies. The main body is of the campana form and is decorated with lobing, on the lower section. The upper section of the main body has slightly flared sides decorated with a crisp wide band of raised trailing vines and grapes, indicating its use. The front is beautifully engraved with a garter cartouche containing the contemporary initial D. This piece has a gilded interior and is well marked on the side. This is the first time we have offered such a piece and the quality is exceptional, as is the condition.
