Imported and stocked at Gump's in San Franciso during the late 1960s to early 1970s. Awesome retro ice bucket with large cork lid and wicker handle by Takahashi, mid-century Japanese art glass and art pottery maker. In excellent condition.
Hand blown orange glass with applied clear glass knob handles. Wicker handle can be removed. Cork top is hard with age but seals airtight and looks in amazingly good shape considering material and age. Handle survived in great shape too. This item wasn't used much. Jar has medium bottom wear.
