Antique French Wine Bottle Cleaner Circa 1900

"La Pratic" Paris

This device, from Paris France was used approximately 120 years ago as a way to clean the inside of wine bottles. The metal wires are inserted into the bottle, and are then hand crank activated to rotate and thus clean. Bottles could then be reused. This model has been completely cleaned and polished, and can serve as an interesting and decorative piece of wine related history.

CONDITION: Very good. Recently cleaned and polished. Brass "cup" has some minor splits as seen in photos.

Length=25 1/4, H=5 1/2, D=13 1/2
