Home Tableware & Barware | Contemporary Cipolla Designs Pewter Bear Pine Cone Ice Bucket / Wine Chiller #1204 XV60762
This hand made Cipolla Italian pewter ice bucket / wine chiller is from the Bare & Pine Cone Collection and is a magnificent tribute to the bravura of the bear amongst their natural habitat.Each piece in this collection conveys the sense that the bears are quietly surrounded in a natural forest of evergreens, pine and pine cones.The bears were created from wooden antique, hand-carved black forest bears from Germany.This piece has never been used and comes in the original box.
Richard Cipolla has led the resurgence of traditionally formed Italian pewter, which is produced in the Lombardia region of Italy, between Milan and Venice.Old World methods yield pieces with a patina comparable to the world's most expensive sterling silver.All Cipolla's items are handcrafted from the highest grade of pure pewter and contain neither lead nor aluminum alloys.
Intricacy and elegance of these designs is what sets Cipolla Pewter apart.The company's design philosophy can be summed up in five words: Putting the fun in functional.Not merely incredibly beautiful and impeccably crafted, Cipolla's Pewter pieces serve a purpose, in a manner that does not take itself too seriously.
In 1998, Cipolla interdicted his line of Italian-made pewter to the U.S.Since then, his pewter pieces have been featured at upscale emporiums across the globe.
