A very good George II red walnut & brass banded oval form wine cooler, of excellent original colour & patina. The cooler is constructed using vertical sections of timber around a solid oval base, banded and held with two brass bands with oval shaped carry handles to either end. The cooler benefits from a removable later steel constructed and zinc plated liner and rests on a 19th century mahogany stand.

Red walnut was a term initially used in England when mahogany was first imported from the Caribbean circa 1730 -1740, the country at that time was accustomed to furniture made from oak, or from either oak or pine with a walnut or oyster veneer laid on top. This “new” wood gradually faded over the years into the lovely aged rich dark golden brown colour seen on this piece and so many other quality mahogany pieces today.
Excellent. Cleaning & waxing, the steel zinc plated liner and stand 19th century.
From a private residence in Edinburgh.
English, George II, circa 1740
