Hepplewhite Period Brass Bound Mahogany Cellarette on Stand with Brass Castors. Circa 1770 - 1790
For sale, a superb hexagonal brass bound mahogany cellarette or cellaret on stand with brass castors. Circa 1770 - 1790.
Similar cellarettes appear in George Hepplewhite’s “The Cabinet-Maker & Upholsterer’s Guide” of 1788 although we may attribute these to a slightly earlier period as Hepplewhite’s Guide was released posthumously. The onset of The Regency Period made way for the more commonly encountered sarcophagus classical form.
The cellarette has a replacement lock and the liner and although old, is certainly a replacement as the original would have been more integral to the inside of the piece and would have drained through the base.
