A pretty George III Mahogany and Inlaid Cellarette with inlays to the top and front the whole raised on square tapered legs terminating in brass cups and casters. This is very typical of the George III Period with the bold fan inlays to the top and front as well as the chequer banding and line inlays which all help to accentuate the design of this pretty, small and very useful piece of furniture.  Originally these pieces were often described with the French words “gardes de vin” as in The Cabinet-maker and Upholsterer’s Guide” by George Hepplewhite published in 1786 posthumously by his widow, Alice. As the name suggests this was a way of having wine stored in reception rooms under lock and key to prevent any staff members stealing one’s wine.

Circa 1800
