It is used to store wine or liquor bottles, thus the nod to the wine cellar in the name. These pieces are traditionally made of wood and the interior is typically lined with metal or lead. Some examples are compartmentalized, and they are frequently equipped with a lock. Cellarettes were developed around 1700, but flourished in the late 1700s and well into the 1800s. It was common to find them on display in dining rooms of the day. They often stood on tall legs equipped with castors to assist with portability from room to room as needed. In the 18th century, cellarettes progressively grew taller to accommodate taller wine bottles. The term cellarette can also refer to a metal-lined compartment or deep tray for bottles within a sideboard, liquor cabinet, or mini-bar. It is a freestanding, full-length mirror mounted between two upright posts. This mirror style was developed in the late 1700s. Over time, the term cheval has come to describe any standing mirror. It's also used for smaller mirrors suspended from a frame that are part of a furniture piece like a chifforobe. Some examples are attached to small bases that include drawers. The term expanded to mean a stool, short side table, or even a cabinet of any shape. Usually the box was a tea caddy, used for storing loose tea. If it was flat-topped, the teapoy could also serve as a small tea table. Teapoys continued to be popular into the mid-19th century, growing increasingly ornate. Over time, the term also came to mean any stand with a box attached, even if it stood on four legs. Nice prices, friendly customer service and some really great finds!
Later nineteenth century versions were sometimes taller, and were made in brass or combinations of metal and wood.
