Catalogue Note

The design for this sarcophagus-shaped gadrooned wine-cooler derives from the 'krater' vase designed by Thomas Hope and illustrated in his Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, 1807, pl. XIII. A pattern for the present example, but with plain molded rim,  appears in the 1820 Estimate Sketch Book of Gillow & Co. of London and Lancaster, no. 3064. An almost identical example, formerly in the collection of the Marquess of Bristol, Ickworth, Suffolk, was sold, Christie's, London, May 24, 2001, lot 43.  A pair of related sideboard cisterns was sold by Gillows Oxford Street branch to Thomas John Wynn, 2nd Baron Newborough in 1823.
