A very fine quality English early 19th century carved mahogany wine cooler or cellarette, after a design by Charles Heathcote Tatham

Circa 1815.

Of the sarcophagus shape with flat domed hinged lid with rope-twist brass handle, above the flat moulded front, flanked with fluted pilasters, headed by brass paterae, the whole raised on carved and scrolled ebonised lion's paw feet with concealed castors.

This design is derived from C. H. Tatham's Etchings Representing the Best Examples of Ancient Ornamental Architecture Drawn from the Originals in Rome and other parts of Italy, during the years 1794, 1795 and 1796, 1799, pl. 77. Tatham had been encouraged by his mentor, the architect Henry Holland, to study and collect antique fragments and sculpture: the editions of Etchings, which appeared from 1799-1810 are of the first importance in forming the new archaeological appreciation which Thomas Hope would go onto synthesise so dramatically.

A related faux-marble painted cellaret, by repute from Castle Howard, Yorkshire, formerly with Vernay & Jussel of New York, was sold Sotheby's New York, January 21, 1995.
