Old Sheffield Plate*.

Most wine coolers hold one single bottle and have a detachable liner and rim. They usually have handles because the condensation can make the outside very slippery. The earliest silver wine coolers are very rare and date back to circa 1700.The wine cistern can date back to the 1600’s although it’s rare to find one earlier than 19th century.

Literature: *Old Sheffield plate was a process used in Georgian times to make articles from a sheet of copper fused with a thin sheet of sterling silver. This process predates the silver plating done today (electroplating) which started in the 1840s. The majority of these silverwares were made in Sheffield, UK (hence the term Old Sheffield plate) which was a major UK centre for silver production.
