Ah, this is a beautiful mixture of art deco cocktail items from my collection, circa 1930-1940. The rare ice bucket is made by Revere, Rome NY, and it's one of my absolutely favorite art deco designs with its bakelite base, finial, and handles. The design is attributed to Archibald Welden. Honestly, the ice bucket reminds me of a Teletubby head! (And who uses ice buckets these days? Mainly a thing of the past.) The amazing blue mirror and chrome cocktail tray is a custom made piece. When I bought it from the dealer, the tag on it said it was made in 1940 by a husband for his wife--what a great gift. The chrome cocktail cups with circular fins on the bases and cobalt glass inserts are also very rare, and the design is often attributed to Walter Von Nessen.
