1960's reproduction of a Shiang Dynasty (1766-1122 B.C.) urn
Originally used by emperors as an urn for cooking meat after a successful hunt. The midcentury company Getz Bros & Co. created an identical reproduction, for use as a modern ice bucket. Original literature with the ornate illustrative details included...This statley piece is quite the cocktail party conversation starter.
From the original literature:
"The Handle: Represents the tails of two fish shown out of water, the fish being a symbol of freedom, happiness and figting spirit."
Material: heavy non-ferrous alloy
