This is a pair of "His and Hers" vintage, French, "Piper Heidsieck Champagne", ice buckets /wine coolers from the 1990's.
Now iconic and very collectible these ice buckets were a promotional item, never for sale to the general public, given to restaurants, bars and bistros all over France to promote this brand of French Champagne.
The front and back of these buckets bears the famous, and instantly recognizable, "PIPER, BRUT. Piper- Heidsieck Champagne, Reims France" logos down the center. This world class champagne house has been producing Champagne since 1785.
In great vintage condition, considering their age, there is very little damage to these buckets. There are no major dents at all but they have obviously seen some action in French bars and bistros over the years so have have surface marks and scratches, consistent with use, and there is some very slight discoloration on the insides, from years of holding ice and water. I've not tried to clean them up, as I love the authentic, patina, giving them charm and character. They have many, many years of service still to offer.
They are identical in size, shape and weight. The red bucket has an iridescent finish, with "old gold" detailing and handles, the silver bucket has a red logo and handles.
They stands 21cms (8¼") tall and are tapered measuring 15cms (6") diameter at the bottom and 19.5cms (7½") diameter at the rim. They weigh 500gms (1.1 lbs) each.
