Vintage Carved Wood "Kissing Couple" Mechanical Bottle Stopper

Description

This vintage c. 1950 bottle stopper was handcrafted by the renowned artisans of the ANRI workshop in the South Tyrol region of Italy.  The “Kissing Couple” is one of the classic ANRI mechanical bottle stoppers.  When the lever in back is pressed, they raise and swivel their heads to kiss.  So romantic! 

This vintage stopper is in very good working condition with minor wear consistent with age and use. 

The ANRI wood-carving workshop was founded in 1912 and has been run by five generations of the Riffeser family.

Dimensions:  2.25" wide x 3.25" h plus 1.75" cork
