Here is a very interesting piece, an old 19th century brass bottle / wine corker, for the bar. It is made of brass by the Manufacturer 'Eclipse' and it has a serial number, its a great collectors piece. There are holes on the base which would suggest that it may have been designed for attatching to a bar counter or work surface. The mechanisms work well, I cannot certify that it is in full working order, simply because I don't have any knowledge of this sort of thing. The only corks that I have are all stuck in bottles. PLEASE NOTE, THIS IS A HEAVY PIECE, it weighs over 4 KG unpackaged and it will have to be sent by courier, in the UK and overseas.
Thank you for looking and good luck with your offerding!
