Reserved exclusively for the era’s most affluent, these exceptionally rare glass and silver gilt wine coolers by Hunt & Roskell embody the height of the mid-19th century’s grandeur and luxury. The coolers, featuring hand-etched glass and finely chiseled silver gilt, are works of art meticulously crafted by one of the era's finest silversmiths, Paul Storr's protégé. 

The visual splendor of these wine coolers is unmatched. The cut glass vessels are beautifully adorned with shimmering scrolling grapevines, evoking ideas of revelry and bacchanalia perfect for their function as wine coolers. The delicate foliate pattern of the silver gilt mounts embodies the epitome of British silver craftsmanship, made by the celebrated Hunt & Roskell firm known for their naturalistic designs of elaborate floral and vegetal motifs and elegant scrolling patterns like this one.

Hunt & Roskell, a lineage of mastery and distinction in silver craftsmanship, was founded by Paul Storr, the eminent silversmith, in 1819. The firm ascended to prominence under the stewardship of John Samuel Hunt, a direct apprentice of Storr, and soon became synonymous with the finest silverware, securing royal commissions and international acclaim. With a Royal Warrant from Queen Victoria and notable patronage from the Imperial Russian Court, Hunt & Roskell's creations were celebrated at major exhibitions across the globe, including the Great Exhibition of 1851. Their legacy, marked by innovation and artistry, positions Hunt & Roskell as a pivotal figure in the history of decorative arts.
