Congo Ice Bucket/ Warmer By Jens Quisgaard for DANSK

This piece was designed by Quistgaard in 1955 and this is the Smaller ice bucket in this series and measures about 15.5 inches tall, 7.5 inches across the widest part, and 4.5 inches across the base. Teak is now a protected hardwood, so these are now only available in acacia at the price of $230 new.

Why We Love It:

What's not to love about anything Jens Quistgaard designed for DANSK?! DANSK/Quistgaard pieces are considered to be the epitome of Mid Century design.

This pieces is considered to be one of the most iconic of the Quistgaard for DANSK pieces and was featured in the Dec 10/Jan 11 issue of Country Living. We love love everything about this piece from the intensely assertive design, to the handcrafted slatted tapering of the teak and plastic orange liner. These pieces are very unique and have a wonderful history. The Congo line was designed as a modern homage to vikings and it's production apparently saved a danish boat factory from going out of business. I have found an ad before which states that only 8 years after going into production, the ice bucket had been purchased by 23 museums around the world for their permanent collections.

So, prep your bar, bookshelf, or pedestal for this piece to be in your permanent collection!
