Magnificent Edwardian Scottish silver wine cooler

£0 Shipping to

A large, impressive and fine quality silver wine cooler made at the turn of the 20th century by Mackay & Chisholm at 59 Princes Street, Edinburgh. The lower half of the body of this silver wine cooler is hand chased with de Lamerie-style strapwork sections and applied, cast, floral decoration. The rim and girdle are cast and applied in the traditional vine pattern, while the scroll ring handles are decorated in the finest detail with swags of berries and acanthus leaves.

And here's a tip:
While silver and silver plate are superior for keeping contents cold, don't just fill the ice bucket with ice cubes to chill your favourite wines or Champagne. Fill the silver ice bucket with ice, then halfway up with water, before dropping in the bottle. Add more water if there's room. Adding water creates an icy bath that's in contact with the entire surface of the bottle. You're welcome!
