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 is a fabulous vintage, French, 'Champagne Pommery, Reims' ice bucket /wine cooler from the 1980's.
Now iconic and very collectible these ice buckets were a promotional item, 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 and back of this bucket bears the famous, and instantly recognizable, 'Champagne Pommery, Reims- France' logo.
Founded in 1874 in Reims, Pommery Champagne is one of the most respected estates in the Champagne region. Its Elizabethan-style estate was conceived and built by Mrs Pommery in the 19th century!
This ice bucket is in excellent condition with no dents. Considering its age, there is very little damage to this bucket. It has obviously seen some action in French bars and bistros over the years but is still in remarkably good condition. It has scratches across the surface, consistent with use but has many, many years of service still to offer.
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.
The bucket stands 20cms (7¾") tall and is tapered measuring 14cms (5½") diameter at the bottom and 20cms (7¾") diameter at the top. It weighs 400gms (14ozs).
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!......................
