I purchased this in 2004 in a very strange old antique shop in Kashmir India near the Pakistan border. It is beautiful and I was told and believe it was left from when the British ruled India. We were near the lake where many british had houseboats. It is ornately decorated with the local hand painted paper mache on brass. It is definitely unique a terrific conversation piece, a wonderful gift and a perfectly usable ice bucket.
