Dresden Christmas Ornament - Champagne Bottle in an Ice Bucket Candy Container

  • Description
Antique German Dresden Paper Champagne bottle in a Bucket of Ice Ornament
This piece is a Dresden ornament as candy container, the slide from  the bottom half. Bucket construction is of two halves and has only a handle on one side. The top of the bucket is frayed yet stiff.  Ice cubes that look like crystals of some type keep the bottle cool.  The bottle is topped with a silver "foil" and its label is somewhat torn, missing its lower half. A tinseled ribbon ties around the neck of the bottle and acts as the hanger. It is a nice ornament but has some condition issues. Please view other images for condition details. Approx. 3" high.
