Bucket Brigade ice bucket

Bucket Brigade ice bucket

Standing¬† 32cm high this is the mother of all ice buckets! It was designed by Morgan & Co under their Bucket Brigade label, but aside from the knowledge that they produced some very cool ice buckets, I don’t really know much about this American based company – Morgan’s a very common name in the US which makes it especially hard to research in a limited space of time! Looking at the style of their ice buckets, it looks like Morgan & Co manufactured their buckets between the late ’60s and the early 1980s, and I’d guess that this piece was produced sometime in the late ’70s, or possibly even into the ’80s. A friend gave it to me to sell after she inherited it from her granny, and I have to say that that’s one funky lady – Keren, your gran clearly has a taste for the eccentric! A fantastic statement piece that will look great sitting on your bar – plus there’s no chance of you running out of ice at your next bash!
