Clean, fresh and bright, these buckets are perfect for Summer drinks outdoors.
They are fabulous buckets for flowers arrangements, great for wedding table centrepiece displays too!
The front of these buckets bears the famous, and instantly recognizable, "Champagne H. Blin & Co."
Champagne H. BLIN is a union of vintners (Vincelles Cooperative) founded in 1947 by Henri BLIN and 28 other growers.
Located in Vincelles in Marne Valley (25 minutes west of Epernay and Reims), Champagne H. BLIN is known for its cuvees with a strong identity, crafted to express their unique character. These wines are based around the historic local grape variety, Pinot Meunier.
In great vintage condition, considering their age, there is very little damage to these buckets. There are no dents at all, just a few very light surface scratches, consistent with use. The bucket with the darker label has two small "scuff" marks on the rim, which has removed the paint, on the rim top, barely detectable, it can only be seen from above.
They have many, many years of service still to offer.
They are identical in size, shape and weight, just different labels. They have sturdy handles with "rings", making them easy to carry without needing to touch the cold buckets.
They stands 19cms (7½") tall and are tapered measuring 15cms (6") diameter at the bottom and 19cms (7½") diameter at the rim. They weigh 500gms (1.1 lbs) each.
