Wooden Antique English Victorian Chelsea SHERRY Spirits Barrel Keg for LAMP / DECOR / BAR
This fantastic wood spirits / liquor barrel comes from Chelsea England and dates to the late Victorian / early Edwardian period.
it reads in gold lettering “Pale Dry Cordoza Sherry by Stowells of Chelsea” and had black iron banding and bolts.
It would be perfect converted into a lamp! In fact I have two that I'm having made into lamps now.
Measures: 11” tall and about 8 1/2” at widest
Condition: Excellent for age, no chips, no cracks. There is crazing and some signs of wear to the gold, all as to be expected with a piece this old, fragile and large. Overall it is bright and will be marvelous for display!
