eBay watch: 1970s Crayonne for Habitat space age ice bucket


Here's tip for you, add the word 'Crayonne' to your list of favoured eBay searches. Why? Well, in Habitat's formative years, Crayonne designs were sold in the stores, offering an affordable twist on period space age design. We featured one example last week and this Crayonne for Habitat space age ice bucket is another.

Examples of this design are currently being offered for £20+ on 'buy it now' deals, but this one is much more affordable at the price as I write. For your money, you get a simple and stylish ice bucket, complete with lid, liner and original 'Crayonne made in England' sticker on base plus embossed logo.

£7.99 right now, but keep an eye on the brand for other items in a similar style.

“Happle” Apple-Shaped Container

is an apple-shaped container reminiscent of the bold fruit designs of Enzo Mari.

Perhaps the most obvious use for the Happle is as an ice bucket, making a nice change from the usual pineapple shape, but the airtight lid means it could be used to store other food products too, such as biscuits. The lid can be used separately upturned as a bowl. The containers are available in two sizes, 18cm or 30cm.

The small size available to buy from many of the usual places, but TwentyTwentyOne stocks both sizes, costing £20 and £45 respectively.
