The proud eagle, standing tall, embodies the American spirit of freedom and patriotism. Inspired by the history of the young ladies of the 18th and 19th centuries who employed porcelain, marble, and glass eggs as hand cooler to cool the heated hands by the excitement of the evening. Combined with the proud eagle this hand cooler is nice to showcase the American spirit. Steuben's line of crystal hand cooler modernized the design into exquisitely intricate works of art that nestle refreshingly in your palm. This hand cooler also doubles as an awesome decorative piece.
