Very unusual Victorian WMF ice bucket of asymmetric ice-cube shaped body. The glass is finished in a crackled effect which creates a frosted illusion, though the glass is clear. Mounted in silver plate with ornate pierced geometric design to the band.

The swing handle is decorated on top with a pair of mythical fish / dolphins that look almost Medieval. Joined by a large pair of later-date ice tongs with bird claw grips. Made by WMF (W├╝rttembergische Metallwarenfabrik); mark in use c.

14 cm tall to rim. 26.5 cm tall to handle. 13 cm diameter on top.

8 cm diameter at base. Good antique condition, no damage to glass. Wear to silvering; some scuffing to the tongs commensurate with age and use.
