Circa 1860, Sheraton revival satinwood inlaid and painted Vin de Garde/wine cooler. The top is crossbanded in kingwood, satinwood and ebony and there is a further panel in the centre with a wonderful satinwood veneer. The double border is painted with flowers, leaves and branches. At the sides there are George III style brass swan neck lifting handles. At the front there is a large oval panel painted with children and cherubs beneath a tree and a woodland scene. There is also cross banding on the front, back and sides which matches the top. The Vin de Garde is attached to a stand with simple string inlay and rosewood crossbanding beneath, standing on 4 square tapering legs with ebony banding on the fore edges and painted swags and tails down the front. Very clean, stylish Vin de Garde.
