Object Description

A fantastic decorator’s item. This stylish bar set in the form of a ship’s bucket has a coopered body made of solid wood panels held together with silver plated metal bands and has a chunky rope handle. Holds up to 3 standard wine bottles. The multi-purpose bottom section swivels out and can be used to contain bar items, bottle openers, cigars, playing cards etc. Above the swivel drawer, engraved to the silver plated band, are the British patent numbers “Rd90495 DEPOSE Rd90496”. Height 25.5 cms. Diameter 21 cms. Made in England. Circa 1910.

Object Condition

This useful novelty drinks set is in used condition with a few issues. The wood is in good condition and the silver plating has no wear; the cord is very frayed but this is possibly intentional. The bucket will easily hold 3 bottles but as it has no liner it may not be waterproof. The drawer spring needs attention and doesn’t stay closed easily. Some of the metal retaining pins have been replaced.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
