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 stylish, 1970's, mid century 'Suze' ice bucket would have been given to French bars/bistros as advertising publicity and makes a great gift for any collector of retro French barware.
I've been using these fabulous ice buckets as candle holders for many years, as their thick glass makes them ideal to hang outdoors as lanterns for garden parties. These vintage ice buckets make the perfect retro table decorations, interesting, chic, and safe too, as glass is the perfect container for indoor candles.
It is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. It has a 'frosted' band at the top and the instantly recognizable 'SUZE LIQUEUR' Logo, characterized by the bold black lettering against a bright yellow asymmetric band with a red border, across the front.
There is some slight rust on the metal handle, which is to be expected with the age of the piece and in no way detracts from it. It measures 11cms/4½" diameter, stands 12.5cms/5" tall and weighs 500gms/1.6lbs.
Suze is a French bitters brand flavored with gentian roots invented in Paris by Fernand Moureaux in 1885, normally drunk as an aperitif (early evening drink.)
This ice bucket will be sent to you gift wrapped in cellophane, with a brand new candle (like the one in the photos) included.
I have more of these gorgeous ice buckets here in my shop, if you'd like to buy more than one to display.
Thanks for visiting,
