Wooden Antique English Victorian Chelsea SHERRY Spirits Barrel Keg for LAMP / DECOR / BAR


Brand unknown

This fantastic wood spirits / liquor barrel comes from Chelsea England and dates to the late Victorian / early Edwardian period. 
I can't make out the top word, it may be 'Medium' but the rest reads in gold lettering “_______ Cordoza Sherry by Stowells of Chelsea” and has black iron banding and bolts.

 It would be perfect converted into a lamp or as a display piece in a bar or game room!  

Measures: Appx 12” tall

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!
