A Salvo's purchase yesterday was this light blue ice bucket signed "Strömberg G8". A chunky piece of Swedish glass for the bar!
Rebessin said this of the same item here on CW belonging to austrohungaro : "The ice bucket has a model number G8, and I think it's an Asta production too. There seems not to be any ice buckets by Gerda Stromberg in my old catalogue at all. Either from Eda before 1933. But of course, it could be a late 1940's or early 1950's design, and in that case possible by Gerda? But in my catalogue from 1954 there are no ice bucket at all, either on pictures or in the price list. In my catalog from 1972's there are ice buckets, among other things this one. Therefore I think this is a later Asta design."
The handle and strainer both fit into drilled holes on each side.
Height: 13 cm or 5.1 inches.
Width: 12 cm or 4.75 inches.
It is quite heavy ....... 55 oz or 1.56 kg !
EYE4BEAUTY has a great one here ....
