Made at the end of the 19th century, this is a fine and majestic, antique silver (.800 standard) wine or Champagne cooler with hand-chased decorations incorporating acorns, oak leaves and scrolls. This silver cooler rests on four cast scroll & leaf supports and features two finely-detailed and lifelike stag-head handles surrounded by more acorn, oak leaf and scroll decorations. One side features a decorative cartouche that could be engraved.

And here's a tip:
Don't just fill the wine cooler with ice cubes to chill your favourite wines or Champagne. Fill with ice, then halfway up with water, before dropping in the bottle or bottles. If there's room for more water, add it. Adding water creates an icy bath that's in contact with the entire surface of the bottle.
Cheers!
