The engraved arms are probably those of Maria-Luisa, Empress of France, Duchess of Parma (1791-1847), and daughter of Charles IV, King of Spain.

Following her marriage in 1795 to her first cousin, Louis of Bourbon-Parma, heir to the Dukedom of Parma, she was Queen of Etruria with Florence as its capital, and Duchess of Lucca. 

The duchy of Parma having been confiscated from the Bourbon-Parma line in 1801, was eventually ruled by Marie-Louise (1791-1847) second wife of Napoleon. At Marie-Louis’s death the duchy was reunited under the Bourbon Parma line by Maria Luisa's son, Charles II.

Matching wine coolers numbered 2 and 4 by the same maker and with the same coats of arms were sold 'Property of a European Royal Family', Sothebys London, 14 April 2011, lot 123 (£58,850).
