Rare pair of circa 1840 English mahogany wine carriers with brass handle, reeded brass tipping and pouring knob and finely dovetailed construction.
The carriers measure 4" high (body), 7" high (to top of handle) by 11 1/4" long (with knob) by 4 1/4" wide. Both are in very good undamaged condition. There are no chips, cracks or restorations. The felt on the bottom is newer. The mahogany has acquired a lovely patination and retains a lustrous waxed finish. As mentioned, they are beautifully and finely dovetailed. Pleasing in every way and so rare to have the pair!
