Every once in a while in our search for fantastic things for interior designers we come across a unique item that catches our eye but we don't know what to do with it. Such was the case with this vintage food warmer.
Although I was captured by how good of condition the woodwork was in - with no damage or cracks despite its age...this vintage rolling trunk as a well insulated "food warmer" was interesting...but what could we do with it? Then sitting at the studio one hot afternoon, it struck me...
If this food warmer could keep food warm, then it could also keep things cold!
Needless to say, I couldn't get back to the vendor fast enough...dreading the thought that someone else had purchased the prize.
As good luck would have it, it was still there...waiting for me.
With two heavily insulated "pockets" - one for beer or hors-d'oeuvres and the other for white wine or champagne, this chiller would be great on any deck or outdoor kitchen.
At a recent art bus tour visit to our studio, we took the opportunity to chill some wine. Everyone was enchanted by the cooler. What surprised us was how long the ice lasted. Imagine this on your deck.
