Antique French Brass Mechanical Wine Cradle ~ Server will make a splendid addition to the wine-connoisseur's collection!  Hand-crafted from solid brass, it features an engraved, contoured four-footed base upon which four turned columns are set, two of which extend upwards to hold the bottle cradle itself on gimbals to allow it to tilt, and the other two which hold the screw mechanism that attaches to the front of the cradle and allows one to turn the handle at the rear to elevate or decline the cradle, allowing one to pour with precision!  The convenient handle on top allows one to easily move from guest to guest, then set the bottle down as is, with the bottle positioned upwards to continue breathing if desired, or to be corked for the next round.
Circa early 1900s
