Tiggy & Pip is a vintage home décor shop by mother and son décor and interior design loving duo, Tiggy and Pip Coudray.
With a shared love of all things French and vintage we opened our shop in 2011.
Based in France, between Cognac and La Rochelle, we source unusual items from recent French and European history. Everyday French household items from the 1880's to 1980's which, although at one time were plentiful, are now increasingly rare and collectible. We source specialist props for films/photo shoots and interior designers. Many of our 'finds' are currently on display in a number of top New York restaurants and Hollywood apartments.
This fabulous ice bucket is a collectors piece, as 'Rémy Red' has been discontinued for a number of years. It is made of thick plastic, but looks like 'frosted glass' so is very practical as it cannot be damaged if knocked over.
The plastic is a chunky 7mm/0.3" thick, designed to keep the ice from melting too quickly and is smooth on the inside.
This type of ice bucket makes a stylish candle table lantern, perfect for outdoor garden parties. It makes the perfect table decoration, interesting and chic. I've styled it this way in the photos to give you a 'feel' for how it looks as a table decoration, festive and warm.
The 'Rémy Martin - Fine Champagne Cognac' Logo appears on both sides. The Centaur (Centaurs are half-human, half-horse creatures in Greek mythology) can be seen from the inside of the ice bucket too, as he is a raised motif and so has a 3D effect.
'Rémy Red' was a liqueur made from fruit juices & a touch of Rémy Martin Cognac. Red Berry was a luscious, fruity fusion of red berries, peaches and apricots blended together with a touch of Remy Martin Cognac. Since it is best served 'on the rocks' this Ice Bucket was given to bars, cafés and bistros in France as an advertising promotional by the famous Rémy Martin cognac house.
Instantly recognisable it will sit stylishly with your collection of French modern collectibles in your kitchen or bar.
It is 13cms/5" diameter and 13cms/5" tall. It weighs 700gms/1.5lbs
It has obviously seen some action in a French bistro or bar!.........There are a couple of 'wear and tear scratches' to the bottom, as would be expected with use.
This re-purposed ice bucket will be sent to you gift wrapped in cellophane, with a brand new candle (like the one in the photos) included so it's ready for you to use or to give as a gift.
I have lots more vintage, mid-century, candle lanterns here in my shop, if you'd like to buy more than one to display.
Thanks for visiting,
