Description

Magnificent Victorian silver-plated mechanical wine cradle; these pieces were designed so that the bottle could be gradually tipped downward, glassful by glassful, leaving any sediment at the bottom of the bottle so as not to spoil the wine in the glass. Very civilised! This example is in full working order, the bottle is tipped by winding the handle. The bottle cradle and carrying loop are mounted on a "vine and leaf" design base to continue the wine theme. These were very often French, but because of the outstanding quality it is felt that this particular piece is undoubtedly English. Great item of high quality, and really good fun! Terrific conversation piece.
