A Monumental Sterling Silver Wine Cooler

A monumental, European, sterling silver , massive wine cooler. Approximately 5,600 troy oz (175 Kilo) (385lbs)54 inches (137cm) wide49 inches (124cm) tall36 inches (91cm) front to backAfter the original by C F Kandler, London 1735.The original was commissioned by Henry Jernegan (Jerningham), a London banker, who wanted to posses the largest ever wine cooler celebrating the pleasures of wine. It took the silversmith Charles Frederick Kandler four years to make. When it was finished in 1735, it weighed over 8,000 ozs. In 1737 Jernegan offered the cooler as a lottery prize to raise funds for a new bridge over the Thames at Westminster. Silver medals were sold as lottery tickets for about five or six shillings each. The winner, Major William Battine, appears to have sold the cooler to the Regent Anna Leopoldovna of Russia in 1738. Since 1743 it has been in the Hermitage, St Petersburg.  This sterling silver wine cooler, one of 4 copies known, is just another example of the fine, rare, collectible, usable, everyday, museum & investment items that are always for sale at EstateSilver.com and at our Manhattan gallery.  The other three copies are silver plated and can be seen at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, The Metropolitan Museum in New York, and the 3rd silver plated copy is in the collection of the Her Majesty The Queen’s Regimental Silver. This is the only known sterling silver copy, and is the only one that is available for sale.
