The quatrefoil trellis pattern and rococo flourishes of this cooler recall examples of 18th century French silver. The most relevant English object of this type is the Ashburnham Centerpiece, produced by Nicholas Sprimont in 1747 and now in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum. Storr would certainly have been familiar with the Ashburnham centerpiece, as he was commissioned in 1836/37 to make a large silver dinner service for the 4th Earl of Ashburnham. Also dating to 1837 is Storr's silver-gilt bottle stand of trellis pattern punctuated with rounded quatrefoils. This bottle stand sold from The Collection of Alan and Simone Hartman, Christie's, New York, 20 October 1999, lot 209.
