Extremely Rare Meriden Alhambra Ice Bucket-SOLD
This is one of the rarest shapes of Alhambra that exists – this ice tub is really a stunning example of one of the most desirable patterns of the Brilliant Period. An Alhambra collector assures me he has has only seen a handful over the years and values them very highly.
The rim of this piece features the pattern’s signature castle rim followed by a chain of cut and unpolished Greek key. The rest of the Alhambra pattern is composed of chains of hobstars and bands of cane. Even the tab handles have hte castle rim and clear button hobstars cut into the handles.
The ice tub is in perfect condition and measures 6 1/2″ wide and 4″ tall. This is one of the most iconic patterns of the period and this is an extremely unusual find.
