B884 - SOLD
This is a superb antique French wirework wine bottle cradle which can be used for decanting or pouring wine. It dates from about 1920.
The cradle sits on a woven base from which the wire is worked upwards in a lattice configuration into a sauce boat shaped wire basket with a ‘spout’'. The 'spout' holds the neck of the bottle with the aid of a twisted wire loop.
Two twisted wire ropes extending backwards from the loop form the handle.
The wire work is intricate and of excellent quality and condition. It has a subtle antique silver hue which would polish to a bright finish if required.
As you can see from the photographs a 70cl wine bottle (not included) will nestle nicely into the cradle. The flexibility of the fantastic wirework allows the cradle to ‘grip’ the bottle safely.
You can serve your wine with consummate style and grace with this decanting and pouring cradle which would look superb on any dining table.
It measures:- 27 cm (10.5 inches) long x 11 cm (4.25 inches) deep x 18 cm (7 inches) high to the top of the handles.
Another divine antique French find from La Belle Étoffe!
