Toybox: Champagne holders
Christofle - Bulle D'Argent champagne cooler
The French silverware brand's latest cocktail collection is inspired by the shape of champagne bubbles. This silver-plated cooler (HK$13,560) has a simple design, featuring a shapely round body and a grip handle.
Ercuis - Empire champagne bucket
This silver-plated champagne bucket (HK$25,740) is a new addition to the French brand's Prestige collection. Standing on a base decorated with palmettes, the bucket has a curvy, mirror-shine body. Engraved horn-shaped handles are a tribute to decorative arts from ancient Etruria (now Tuscany), with inspiration taken from empire-period vases discovered in Tuscany, Greece and southern Italy. Available at Heather & March.
Nicholas Brawer Gallery - 1846 champagne trolley
This vintage champagne trolley (below; US$7,000) is silver-plated and dates from 1846, England. It looks just like an English field cannon when the champagne is mounted. With its moveable wheels and tilting carriage, it'll make a great centrepiece at a party. Available at Nicholas Brawer Gallery (firstname.lastname@example.org).
