A pair of large English Country House wine coolers or cellarettes in the manner of Thomas Hope. Their quality and condition is rare, given their age. The cuban mahogany sarcophagus cases are beautifully executed, with lion paw feet and hidden casters. The interiors are lead lined, one for bottles, the other for ice. The gilt bronze lion masks are finely tooled and a distinctive model of Hope’s. . .
