|Kenro Ice Bucket on Etsy at shop Archivia, $29|
1. Made in the USA this lovely tri color red white and blue would go great at your 4th of July cookout. It can be found for $16.99 (what a steal) by Ebay user rsuresell
2. A lovely robin's egg blue makes this turquoise ice bucket perfect for any melmac collector. Would look lovely to accompany that summer picnic! This is only $15.00 starting bid at ThePerfectPickCollectibles.
3. Retro colors make this tri tone a great addition to any vintage melmac collection. This one is available at rock bottom pricing, only $12.50 at MODernThrowback on Ebay.
4. Lovely pale yellow is a great item to use in the Spring or for Easter. Available for $48.95 at The Rummage Rak on Ebay.
5. Super speckled version in the Holiday by Kenro line comes with 8 fun bowls! All you need for a super duper party, only $47 for the lot at CarpeBellus on Etsy!
6. Iconic white speckles in the Holiday line make this a nice clean bucket for the mod design lover! I think being one color draws your eye to the great designs! This one $36 at ElementreeOldSkool on Etsy!
7. Rare Vintage Goodies on Ebay has this speckled two tone for $107.99. I'm in love with this, I think the colors are reminiscent of the late 60's and you could use the base for a garbage bowl in your kitchen!
I found evidence of them being produced up to the late 70's. Some are quite lovely and comprised of several different colors which can make collecting them fun! They are heavy duty and I've never found them chipped which tells me their thick heavy construction held up well over time. They are still fully functional and will keep your ice cold for a long time.
|The patterns are rare, and are printed right onto the melamine. This one, $99.99 from DupsterDiverWI|
I would certainly pay on average $50 for a rarity that would match my collection. Odd is the color of pale yellow from #4 in my Kenro Collage, and it would match the Boontonware line quite wonderfully! For that reason it may be priced higher and sought after by those who can use it as a go-with in their melmac collection. Of course, rarest are patterned pieces where the melmac has tacky designs on it. I tend to think they may sell slower because they have to find the right person to give them their forever home!
Which would you own from above? Tell me!
