Silver wine coolers were first introduced in the UK around the 1770’s, replacing the silver wine cistern, and enabling one bottle to be held away from the water and ice, keeping the bottle cold but not wet. The earlier ‘bucket’ shape is highly sought after and rare to find, and was replaced by the more common campagna shape towards the end of the 18th Century. Produced in sterling silver, Old Sheffield Plate, and electroplate, the silver wine cooler makes a wonderful and usable statement on any table.
