This is a fabulous vintage 'Picpoul de Pinet, Blanc de Blancs' Ice Bucket /Wine Cooler from the 1970's.
It has sturdy handles with 'rings', making it easy to carry without needing to touch the cold bucket.
Picpoul is a variety of wine grape grown primarily in the Rhone Valley and Languedoc regions of France. 'Blanc de Blancs' means a still or sparkling white wine made from white grapes only.
It is in great condition and, considering its age, there is very little damage to this bucket. It has obviously seen some action in bars and bistros over the years but is still in remarkably good condition. It has no major dents, just odd 'dints'. It has scratches across the surface, consistent with use and some discoloration, from years of holding ice and water, but it has many, many years of service still to offer.
It would look amazing filled with flowers as a table centerpiece!
The bucket stands 20cms (7¾") tall and is tapered measuring 13cms (5") diameter at the bottom and 20cms (7¾") diameter at the top. It is lightweight at 300gms/10½ ozs. It is stamped 'Vogalu, Made in France' on the underside.
I have left this bucket exactly as I found it, without cleaning it because I love the authentic patina of its vintage appearance.
A stylish and chic way to add glamour to your drinks party!......................
