Antique French fridge with original paint


In stock

Something a bit different!

This is a late 1800’s French cold storage or fridge with the most beautiful layers of chippy original paint in creams, blues and greys. The right hand side of the top lifts to reveal a zinc lined tray with a zinc inlaid preparation surface sunk into the left hand side. The base is a large single cupboard with the original hardware on the door, opening to reveal one original metal slatted shelf (with the fittings for another) and a zinc lined interior. The door has it’s original vent with a drainage hole to the left hand side.

This could now be used for so many great things – imagine it as an outdoor bar area for parties with the top used to create an ice bucket for drinks, lemons being chopped on the little inlaid surface and inside bottles of fizz, beers and white wine. Alternatively it could be transformed into an amazing sink unit with a copper wall-mounted tap and the top tray made into the basin with the lower cupboard for storage. Or how about a garden feature with the top planted up??

It is in it’s original, untouched condition which is rustic. The top could be cleaned up for a more ‘polished’ look.
