I bought all of these pieces on separate occasions, but they all have a very similar aesthetic, so I thought it made sense to group them together. And it seems that the Japanese Hoya ice bucket (the one with the faux leather detail on the handle) was originally sold with matching tumblers, which is probably why these glasses look so good paired with it! The texture on the glasses is different to that of the ice buckets, which in turn are different to each other, but again all three have a very similar style. There’s some minor wear to the stainless steel handles on the ice buckets, but generally speaking they’re still in good condition. I’m not so sure that they’re right, but quite a few sites refer to the Hoya ice bucket as crystal, and a number of other sites seem to think that the ice bucket with the metal band could be attributed to Scandinavian glass makers, Ittala – I think it’s probably wishful thinking on both counts, but you never do know!
Note: The ice buckets aren’t that large – please pay attention to the dimensions below
Dimensions: Hoya ice bucket (faux leather handle) – 13cm tall x 12cm wide x 12cm deep; Plain ice bucket (plain stainless steel handle) – 12cm tall x 12cm wide x 10cm deep; Small glass tumblers – 7.5cm tall x 6cm in diameter
