A spectacular large sterling silver "wine barrel" champagne cooler, of convex form with stave style sides accented by applied hoops. Generously sized, the cooler comfortably holds 4 standard champagne bottles, and is suitable for larger champagne bottles such as the Jeroboam (3 litres) or Mathusalem (6 litres). Very finely hand crafted by Armenian silversmiths in the heart of Istanbul, the cooler is stamped with the maker's mark LALE, 925 / Sterling, and carries the French "swan" silver control mark. Professionally cleaned by our Parisian silversmith, condition is excellent with just light signs of use to note. Please refer to listing images for measurements and weight.
Revered as one of the greatest 20th century interior decorators, Alberto Pinto was a passionate collector and renowned for his legendary table settings. The late designer's eclectic taste, and his love of rare and original objects, is reflected in this magnificent, oversized, champagne cooler.
