Too much of anything is bad, but too much Champagne is just right. - F. Scott Fitzgerald

{HISTORY}

Founded in Providence, Rhode Island in the 1830s, Gorham Silver was synonymous with high quality, elegant and sophisticated silversmithing. With a store on 5th Avenue in Manhattan, collections held by the White House and a stable of ardent admirers from around the world, Gorham Silver remained a leader in the industry until the 1960's when the company was purchased by Textron and the once superior level of quality started to decrease. This 1940's Champagne/Wine Cooling bucket is the epitome of elegance with its floral rim, decorative handles, and classic shape. The rim on edge dips slightly creating a bib-like effect that shows off the embossed rim, which gives it unique character as most Gorham bar buckets features a flat rim all the way around. 

{SPECIAL FEATURES}

- Decorative embossed rim of scrolls and flowers

- Sturdy decorative handles

- Slight dip in rim edge

- Authentically tarnished patina

{CONDITION}

In lovely, fully functional condition that can be polished if you prefer it shiny. Very well constructed with thick walls, base, handles, and rim. Not sure what adventure led it to having a dip in the rim, but we are hoping it was a fabulous 1940s party that lasted for days and included an army of champagne bottles. 

{SIZE}

Measures !0" inches (height) x 9" inches (diameter). Holds one bottle of champagne plus ice or one 1.5L of wine with ice. 

{STYLE IDEA}

In addition to its traditional use as a cooler for white wines and bubblies, this big beauty also makes a lovely vessel for plants and floral arrangements as well as a table centerpiece for seasonal collections like pine cones, pumpkins, berries, etc. Creativity is also called into action, outside of the kitchen, by using it as a holder for other household items like guest towels, firewood starter pieces, art supplies or as a simple display piece.
