Antique Hotel du Palais, Paris Ice Bucket
Quite rare antique silver plated petite ice bucket from the Hotel du Palais, which is currently called the Grand Hotel du Palais Royal Paris. Upon further research, this could have been from the Hotel du Palais d'Orsay, Paris, but it's difficult to tell because it's such an early piece.
The beautiful piece has the hotel's crest on the side and reads, "Hotel du Palais". It measures 5" tall not including the handle and 9" tall to the top of the handle. The opening diameter is 4-3/4".
Lovely condition with a couple of tiny dings on the back and a dent on the base as shown in the photos. This old piece has been polished back to its original lustre and has a beautiful, bright patina.
There is a faint French hallmark and unrecognizable name on the base.
A really, special collectible piece from a fine Parisian hotel!
