Antique pair of Cellarettes or liquor cabinets imported from England, that were generally custom made wooden chests intended to transport or store a small number of alcoholic beverages. Made of finer woods, like mahogany or rosewood and in numerous shapes and sizes. You would often see cellarettes placed in dining rooms. Men of considerable financial means had as many as three cellarettes as a status symbol. The pair of liquor cabinets or cellarettes were handcrafted from the finest mahogany and refinished in a traditional French polish. We believe that this pair of antique English Cellarettes were made in the mid-1800s. Please note that the top doors on both are warped (image 20) and both have old touchups throughout.
