One of Jens H Quistgaard's iconic designs for Dansk Designs, this is their staved teak ice bucket. With its echoes of Viking longboats, it is made of joined sections of teak with a handle pegged between tow of them. The staves were joined with epoxy and the interior is lined with orange plastic, showing the intersection between Modern and ancient forms in Quistgaard's designs.
It's 15.5" tall and 7.25" in diameter at the widest.
Condition: there are a couple of light marks to the body and (sadly) one chip–0.5" by 0.25"–to the interior top of one of the staves holding the handle.
Mark: branded Dansk Designs Denmark mark. This is not the earliest mark, but one dating to the 60s or 70s.
