This is made from raw sterling silver bullion (nothing plated or cast)
The wine cradle is for vintage wine/port which has a sediment. The bottle is placed in the cradle and the screw at the bottom is tightened to secure the bottle.
There is also a small silver holder for a small candle which can be used to warm the neck of the port bottle if you so wish.
The hand crank at the rear is then turned which in turn tilts the bottle slowly. The slow tilting ensures that the sediment remains at rest at the bottom of the bottle.
The solid sterling silver framework is set securely into a 2 inch thick piece of gorgeous Black American Walnut. If you would prefer another wooden base, please let me know.
These are made to order and will take approximately 6 weeks to finish and get ready for shipping.
