English Silver Plated Wine Bottle TILTER, Wine Decanter or Wine Bottle Cradle - Rare

Extraordinary and substantial Vintage DISTRIBUTEUR A VIN for any Bottle of Wine, or, for Champagne, Cognac etc. this French Decanter which doubles as a Wine Bottle Holder is a Mechanical marvel. Otherwise known as a 'Verseur à Vin à Vis', or, in England, a "Port Tilter"or, simply Wine Bottle Holder. DIMENSIONS are 47cm Tall, 28cm Wide and Weighs an impressive 2.8 kilograms. This Mechanical marvel must have been designed by an Engineering genius, using the principle of the pulley and screwpull system which operates effortlessly with a Botle in place, by turning the Wood Handle. This changes the position of the bottle from upright, horizontal or downward allowing the Wine, Cognac, Champagne etc. to be poured into a Glass. It functions by a handmade Mechanical System using a Screw Thread Mechanism with an L shaped Winder at the back, fitted with a very fine, small woodlen Handle. The handmade Mahogony wood Base rests on 4 Feet. This 'work of art' must have been a Custom Order for a Wine Chateau in Bordeaux, Burgundy etc. Circa 1950's.   CONDITION, WORKMANSHIP & QUALITY are simply Outstanding. What an amazing Decorative, Practical, Conversation and Presentation piece, and not seen very often at all.!
