The Cooler is of the Classical Campana form and stands on a circular spreading foot which rises to a gadrooned band. The lower section of the main body is decorated with a wide band of lobing on a matted ground. The upper section is plain in design and rises to an everted, gadrooned, rim. The front and reverse is engraved with a contemporary Coat of Arms surrounded by a very finely engraved cartouche of drapery mantling. The two reeded loop side handles are attached to the main body with very unusual cast satyr masks. The collar is also engraved with two contemporary Crests and can be removed so that ice can be packed down the side to cool the wine. The interior cylinder also comes out for cleaning. This piece is in quite excellent condition and is fully marked on the main body, cylinder and cooler. The Arms and Crest are those of the Matthews family of Scotland. This piece was featured in the national magazine, Country Life, on 14th February, 2018.
