Bonjour!
This is an unusual find: an antique handheld wine corker. This tool is used to push a cork into a wine bottle. It is quite heavy, and made entirely of brass. I think at one point the two pieces were welded together, but they have come undone. It is otherwise in perfect condition, with a nice aged patina. Marked Sambri N° 1 on the push part.

Measurements:
7 inches long and 4 inches wide (18 cm by 10 cm)

I do offer layaway options, for large orders. I can split the payment into smaller increments, so long as the first payment is made at a specific date that we both agree to.
