Object description :

"Glass Cooler In Lacquered Sheet, Period, Directory Year Iv- Year VIII, (1790-1795)."
Refreshing cup in lacquered sheet metal of the period, Directory year IV- year VIII, (1790-1795).
Refresher of ovoid form hollowed out with fluted neck in lacquered sheet metal presenting a decoration typically of the end of the reign of Louis XVI and the beginning of the Directory with circular decoration of garland with repetitions of scrolling flowers of the East. Black lacquer preparation, circular decoration of oil and gold painting, transparent lacquer, interior in black corroded lacquer, iron handle, gold color varnish. The decoration of this canopy illustrates the predominant influence of Oriental decoration on European objects in the latter part of the 18th century. Also known as verrières, on the same principle as the bottle bucket, this object with a crenellated rim allowed to wedge the feet of the glasses and thus to cool them upside down. The coolers were placed on a console, along the wall of the reception room, because until the end of the 18th century it was not customary to have glasses at the table. When one of the guests wanted to drink, he had to ask the valet behind him to serve him, which implied drinking "bottoms up" to give the glass back to the lackey who immediately put it back in the cooler filled with ice water. It should be noted that this charming and slightly corroded cooler has come down to us in its total original condition, no restoration is to be reported, only some wrinkles of time are present such as slight missing.
