Tiffany & Co. Sterling Stave Tub Ice Bucket

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Circa 1950s, Sterling, by Tiffany & Co. New York. Designed in the form of a colonial era wooden watering tub, this sterling ice bucket is part of a magnificent tradition of figural sterling hollowware by Tiffany & Co. It is superbly made, very heavy, rather large, and beyond fabulous. Excellent condition.

Remark: “I am struck by the attention to detail. The hoops that hold the staves together are an early cooperage innovation solving the economic issue of iron being expensive and scarce. Colonial coopers made their hoops of stripped notched green sapling splits that shrank as they dried and made the barrel or tub tight, waterproof, and nail free. This is typical of Tiffany; every large visual brush stroke is underscored by a nuanced sub-rosa narrative.”

Weight: 48.65ozt

SIZE: 8 3/8” in diameter, 3 1/8” high to the rim and 4 ½” high to the handles.

HALLMARKS: Tiffany & Co. Makers, sterling silver and model number 25436 and numeral 4.
