  • Vintage from the 1930s
  • Materials: oak

Wine presses have been used for centuries—the earliest one discovered, dates back 6,000 years. This was likely salvaged from a basket or horizontal screw press, used in a French Vineyard. It was bought in the Charente Maritime, close to the Cognac vineyards. It has been converted into a pedestal/lecturn with a later galleried top. This antique press screw has a deep, rich staining and patina.
It would have been taken from a large wine press where it would have been the centre of a large handle, occupied by people walking either side to bring down the press on a vat of grapes. Sometime in the 20th century it was re-purposed as a pedestal. The screw is late 19th century.
A great and very original piece to display art or to decorate a wine cellar! A very solid piece, heavy and in very good antique condition. Some wear and cracks on wood commensurate with age.

It measures 38.5" height x 13.25" x 13.25" square top or 98cm height x 33.5cm x 33.5cm square top
Screw diameter 6.25" or 16cm
Screw length 24.5" or 62cm
18.1 kg

Just received my chandelier and it’s gorgeous! I’ve checked one of the globes and the main structure and everything looks amazing. (I’m not unpacking the rest until the electrician installs it because I’m clumsy.) The chandelier arrived incredibly quickly and packed very well. And I received “most unusual package of the day” at my PO Box place!

Taxidermy and woodwork are well done. My fault for not realizing the deer hoofs would, most likely, be from a Roe Deer. The hoofs are smaller in stature than the whitetail deer that I am more familiar. The hoofs are small but that's the only "warning" I would post. Delivery was not too bad; coming from France it took longer than domestic shipments.
