You know the one, the staved "Viking" one -- is anyone aware of any other similar ice bucket made by anyone else? I found one that looks like the Dansk, but it has several differences. I've searched all over and so far have not yet seen any example of this design being produced by any one else. The one I have is not marked at all, nor is it made of staves -- it's made from one piece of teak, and the lid is also made from one piece (the knob is not separate) and it has a knob instead of the crossbar style on the Dansk one. It's exceptionally well made. The walls are thinner than the Dansk one. Someone told me that they think they had seen one made by some other Danish designer, but I cannot find any info, if that's true. An early prototype maybe? I will post photos as soon as I take some. The photo below is the typical Dansk/Quistgaard one.
