Carl Deffner Wine Cooler

Item Description

Extremely rare two-bottle wine cooler from Carl Deffner of Esslingen, Germany.

Primarily of copper showing a strong Secessionist design on all four sides, and embellished with polished brass handles, rim and ball-shaped feet. 

The original fitted perforated zinc insert, with two tubes, lifts out for cleaning and prior insertion of the bottles if preferred.

We have only ever come across one of these coolers previously and that one was missing its insert.

Dating from circa 1890 – 1900, the height to the rim is 23.5 cm and to the top of the handles just a fraction below 26 cm. Width between the handles is 38 cm. 

Marked on the underside with the usual Carl Deffner initials and crossed halberds inside a shield and also showing the number 8.

This item is in excellent condition for its age with just a few very minor surface marks here and there.

Ref: 12500
