Wine Coolers

Most silver wine coolers hold one single bottle and have a detachable liner and rim. They usually have handles because the condensation can make the outside very slippery. The earliest silver wine coolers are very rare and date back to circa 1700.
The silver wine cistern can date back to the 1600’s although it’s rare to find one earlier than 19th century. This is a larger wine cooler and can contain many bottles.
