Lot Essay

This pair of wine-coolers form part of the service for 36 which also included a pair of soup-tureens, one of which was sold Christie's, Geneva, 17 November 1998. Nineteen further lots from the service were sold from the Patiño Collection; Christie's, New York, 28 October 1986. Together those lots, which were all made or retailed by Chaumet, weighed over 3,300 troy ounces. The 1986 sale included a wine-cooler for three bottles which is very similar in form and decoration to the present examples. Other pieces from the service descended to the collection of Madame Antenor Patiño and were sold Sotheby's, Paris, 23 September 2010.

Originally engraved with the monogram of Simón Iturri Patiño's wife Albina these are now engraved with the APR monogram. The service was conceived by Chaumet in the Louis XVI style and, before being delivered to Patiño, was laid out in the 18th century salon at the Hôtel Baudard de Saint-James at 12 Place Vendôme, the headquarter in Paris of Chaumet which had been decorated by François-Joseph Bélanger (exhibition catalogue Chaumet Paris Two Centuries of Fine Jewellery, 1998).
