Vintage, 1960s "Champagne Mercier" French Champagne Bucket.
This is a fabulous vintage, 1960s, "Champagne Mercier" ice bucket /wine cooler.
The patina on this bucket oozes style and Parisian pavement bistro/bar/café chic!
The front of this bucket has an embedded metal label bearing the famous, and instantly recognizable, "Champagne Mercier" logo. The Mercier champagne house, in Epernay, has been producing some of France's finest champagne, since 1858.
Rare and Collectible, it is in great condition, considering its age. It has obviously seen some action in bars and bistros over the years but is still in remarkably good condition. It has no dents. It has scratches across the surface, consistent with use, and some slight discoloration, from years of holding ice and water, but it has many, many years of service still to offer. The "vintage" appearance simply adds to it's charm and authenticity.
The bucket stands 21cms (8¼") tall and is tapered measuring 14cms (5½") diameter at the bottom and 19cms (7½") diameter at the top.
It weighs 700gms (1.5lb.)
It has sturdy handles with "rings", making it easy to carry without needing to touch the cold bucket.
It is stamped "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!......................
