Product Description

A cool pair of Sherry barrels…

Although we are unsure of the actual age of these pieces, we would suggest that they date to the last quarter of the 20th century. The two barrels are wooden and metal bound, and complemented with hand painted writing to depict the original contents. Both barrels feature metal taps at the bottom, but we haven’t checked their functionality. We see this as cool display pieces for ones home or maybe great props for a bar or ‘foodery’…

They barrels are relatively heavy, therefore they happily ‘free stand’. The barrels each have a cork on their tops, and once removed there is a nice ‘Sherry aroma’ that omits from the barrel. Unfortunately one of the barrels’ cork has fallen inside the barrell…

We are offering these pieces in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. Structurally the barrels are strong and weighty as described. There are some tatty areas, some surface scuffs and abrasions and some paint chipping, yet we do not believe the current condition is detrimental to the look and feel, if anything it’s what adds to their charm. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
