Bryce, Higbee & Co. came about from a collaboration between the Bryce Brothers of Pittsburgh and J. B. Higbee Glass Company of Bridgeville, PA, both renowned makers of 19th and early 20th-century pressed glass. The Bryce Higbee factory was destroyed by a flood in 1907. This wonderful glass ice bucket, the "Olde Oaken Pail", is most likely from the late 1800s or early 1900s.
Made of clear/frosted pressed glass and shaped like a wooden pail with a hammered metal handle, this ice bucket also comes with claw foot hammered metal tongs. The metal has a slight patina change, but the set has no blemishes otherwise.
