Catalogue Note

The reeded baluster supports on turned tapering legs are almost identical to those on a wine cooler by Gillows offered Christie's London, 18 April 1996, lot 231. A related wine cooler of oval form with turned baluster legs is illustrated in Percy Macquoid & Ralph Edwards, The Dictionary of English Furniture, 3 vols, rev.ed., 1954, vol. I, p.223, fig. 9; another is illustrated in M. Harris, A Catalogue of Old Furniture and Works of Decorative Art, part III, p. 405, fig. F17135.  Numerous examples of this type have been sold recently including one from the collections of Lily and Edmond J. Safra, which sold in these rooms, November 4, 2005, lot 539 ($33,000), and another sold at Sotheby's, London, June 30, 2004, lot 97 (£30,000).
