RARE SIZED SARCOPHAGI FORMED ANTIQUE REGENCY STYLED MAHOGANY CELLARETTE
Bay Colony Antiques is honored to offer you this remarkable rare & unique antique Regency styled mahogany Cellarette. In over 40 years of top tier practice this firm has only encountered a mere handful of Cellarettes on this scale. Liquor bottle holders, these highly crafted pieces would sit upon sideboards & small serving pieces along with knife boxes or silver chests. A must have in period furnishing it is defined by smartly appointed bun feet and decorative ring handles. These handles are not designed to lift heavy liquor bottles in a heavy solid mahogany case. These handles are always missing when we have encountered them. The handles on this have indeed been repaired from just such an attempt by someone not knowing not to try to carry it this way but they are complete, in tact and all original. The Cellarette has its original silver colored interior covering, bottle retaining frame and lock. Sorry no key but the lock can be re-keyed simply. It is 26" long, 18" wide and 17" tall. It is in extremely good condition from an important American period furniture collection.
