This is a lovely piece! Hallmarked with the Heisey "Diamond H", this ice tub is from the #500 Octagon line and features the #447 Empress etch.
Produced some time from 1928 to 1935, the tub measures approximately 8 1/2" in length, 5" in width and 4 1/2" in height. It comes complete with its original metal handle, which I believe may have been silver plated, but it could definitely stand to be re~plated.
The glass tub is free of nicks, chips or cracks. It does have some VERY minimal signs of usage, along with a couple of straw marks and bubbles, not uncommon in glass from this period. VERY Pretty!
