L5161: Hallmarked in London in 1804 by Joseph Preedy, this remarkable pair of Antique Sterling Silver Wine Coolers are richly decorated, featuring a sculptural Bacchanalian frieze depicting the thiasus (the procession which followed Bacchus) and amongst the figures both Bacchus and his drunken foster Father (and tutor) Silenus. The bases are fluted with the underside of the coolers decorated with chased vines and leaves, and the tops decorated with cast grape and vine swags. This incredible pair of coolers are one of a group of 4 known slightly varying designs made by either Joseph Preedy or William Pitts between 1800-1810 (Pitts & Preedy were Partners from 1791-1799), with each example produced featuring the same frieze but with differing borders. Each wine cooler measures 10.5"(27cm) tall, by 9.5"(24cm) in diameter. Together the pair weigh a very impressive 154 troy ounces. The collars are not hallmarked, but are original.
