The fine art of wine-making is brought to life by this rare French wine corker. Beautifully crafted of wrought iron, this corker is specifically designed for ease of use. One by one, a bottle is placed on the iron platform, while a weighted lever cranks down to plunge a cork into the bottle. Any wine that spilled over was collected in the basin underneath. Most corkers were hand-held or sat on floors or table tops; seated models such as this are extremely rare. Mechanically advanced yet endearingly rustic, this corker perfectly embodies the time-honored traditions of exceptional French wine-making.

The base bears the instructions "mouillez les bouchons", meaning "wet the corks."
Shaft inscribed "Modèle Déposé" ("registered design") and "La Pratique"
