This is a wonderful champagne or wine bucket from the Waterford Millennium series, which was offered by Waterford beginning in the year 1996. The series featured stemware, champagne bucket, and other wonderful pieces as only Waterford can offer, in a series of 5 toasts, one for each year, beginning in the year 1996, and culminating in the year 2000... The first toast to Happiness. The second toast to Love. The third toast to Health.
The fourth toast to Prosperity. The fifth toast to Peace. I was gifted these pieces, and others for my work on a related project and have never used them..
While the stemware has only one of the cuts on each of the glasses, the champagne bucket has each of the five patterns cut into the exterior walls of the piece with a series of graduated "x" cuts in a vertical column between each of the patterns... Additional horizontal patterns are cut in the the piece at the top and bottom of the millennium patterns... The piece is simply stunning.. The piece is quite substantial in weight, is flared at the top, on a footed base that has the unmistakeable Waterford star on the underneath....
The piece is new, has never been used, and is in pristine condition and is being offered ind it's original Waterford gray box... It stands 10 3/8" tall and measures 9 3/4" in diameter at the top of the piece.. I also have candy dishes, the champagne flutes and red wine glasses which will be available under separate listings. And pack them carefully to make sure they arrive safely.
