Description Beautiful teak ice bucket designed by Jens H. Quistgaard, manufactured by Nissen in Denmark, circa 1960.

The bucket is made from the highest quality teak wood with a very well crafted leather handle. The lid is crafted from the same wood as the bucket, creating a beautiful harmony. When removed, it reveales the orange plastic inside of the ice bucket, that guarantees to keep your ice cool without damaging the wood. It would make the perfect finish to any Scandinavian/modern interior!

In good original condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina.

Jens Harald Quistgaard (April 23, 1919 – January 4, 2008) was a Danish sculptor and designer, known principally for his work for the American company Dansk Designs, where he was chief designer from 1954 and for the following three decades. Though a sculptor and grounded in traditional handicrafts, he quickly established a career as an industrial designer. From the mid-1950s his tableware and kitchenware designs became synonymous with Scandinavian modern and found their way into millions of homes in the USA, Europe and Japan. With his international orientation and success he was groundbreaking, and he had great significance for the place which Danish design acquired in the minds of many Americans. In 1958 he received the Neiman Marcus Award and during the following years he was represented at major museums in Europe and the USA. Many of Jens Quistgaards works are still produced today.
