  • Pair of wine coolers, 1766
    Zacharias Deichman the Elder (active 1731–76)
    Russian; Saint Petersburg
    Silver; Each H. 8 in. (20.3 cm), Diam. of rim 7 1/2 in. (19.1 cm)
    Gift of Sylvea Bull Curtis, 1981 (1981.367.1,.2)

    These wine coolers are part of a set of at least nine (as recorded in 1907) belonging to the so-called Czarskoe Selo service, named after one of the numerous imperial summer residences around Saint Petersburg. The foliate loop handles still represent the naturalistic influence of Rococo decoration, whereas the restrained form and narrow guilloche borders announce the dawn of Neoclassicism.
