THE COLLECTION: Preston VIEW FULL COLLECTION
Carefully crafted by artisans in the U.K., Preston’s stately combination of a copper ice bucket with pewter handles illustrates the beauty of mixed metals.
- Care and Cleaning Summary: Copper polish is safe for the care of the copper and pewter.
- Method of Construction: Each ice bucket is made from a copper disc which is formed into the bucket shape by spinning - forcing the sheet over a former by hand. This process takes several different stages as t he form needs to be taken down gradually and annealed to make the piece malleable before continuing onto the next stage. The handles are made from pewter and solder by hand into position. The final polish is again applied by hand.
