Six Champagne Flutes and Ice Bucket. "Cordon Rouge G.H. MUMM & Co. REIMS".
This is a fabulous set of six champagne flutes and champagne ice bucket, branded "G.H. Mumm & Co. Cordon Rouge".
G.H. Mumm & Co. (Vinicole (wine producer) de Champagne) is a prestigious Champagne producer based in Reims, France since 1827.
Now iconic and very collectible these were promotional items, 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 of the bucket has the famous, and instantly recognizable, "Cordon Rouge" Red Band Logo, that exactly matches the "G.H Mumm" champagne bottles, which have the same red ribbon band diagonally across the front. The Champagne is "BRUT" meaning "Dry."
The glasses also have the "G.H. Mumm" logo on the front and the ribbon on the back, to match.
The glasses are in pristine, perfect condition. They are delicate and elegant, standing 19cms/ 7½" tall.
The cooler comes complete with the important "foam insert" ring. It stands 26cms/ 10¼" at it's tallest side. It has a carry handle and is slightly tapered, measuring 10.5cms/ 4" diameter, at the base, and 14cms/ 5½" diameter, at the rim. It is super lightweight. The foam insert ring fits perfectly into the top, shaped to fit the neck of a champagne bottle, perfectly snugly. It has a "finger" ribbon loop to allow ease of removal.
The cooler does have some surface scratches and slight "wear" to the logo, consistent with use, but nothing whatsoever to detract from this amazing piece. 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 and has many, many years of service still to offer.
The foam ring has instructions of the reverse:
1. "Mettez un peu de glace pilée et d'eau dans votre MUMM Fresh Box* eau fraicheur" (Put a little crushed ice and water in your MUMM Fresh Box* cold water.)
2. "Glissez-y votre bouteille de champagne MUMM" (Slip your bottle of MUMM champagne into it.)
3. "Dégustez votre champagne MUMM bien frais" (Enjoy your Mumm champagne chilled.)
4. "Videz l'eau et séchez soigneusement" (Drain the water and dry thoroughly.)
Altogether this set weighs 1kg/ 2.2lbs.
We will send you the four sparkly cotton napkins that we used in the photos with this set, as a gift, as we think they look good together!
