Excellent ice bucket in the style of a Chinese censor / incense burner. The style is influenced by James Mont of Holywood Regency Design as well as by ancient Chinese artefacts. In good condition. Made in Taiwan in the 1960's. /// Hollywood Regency style was a product of the Hollywood Golden Age of the 1920s-1950s, when film set designers built over-the-top dream interiors for the silver screen that looked great on camera with all of their attention to detail, color, texture, composition, and finishes. Sometimes called Regency Moderne, Hollywood Regency was an updated take on the interiors of the 19th-century Regency Era. Hollywood royalty developed a taste for the polished glamour of the movie sets, employing interior designers like iconic 20th-century interior designer Dorothy Draper, actor-turned-interior designer William Haines, and Paul R. Williams to glam up their own homes in similar style, in turn popularizing the trend with the film-going masses. In that more glamorous era, stars weren’t doing no make-up virtual job interviews in their basement home offices to show they were just like the rest of us, but rather posing like larger-than-life movie stars in their movie set-worthy private residences. Hollywood Regency was part of an era where luminaries like Marlene Dietrich, Joan Crawford, Gloria Swanson, and Carole Lombard, to name a few, were still in the business of propagating Hollywood mystique and glamour.
