Vintage Carved Wood "Train Conductor" Mechanical Bottle Stopper

Description

This vintage c. 1950 bottle stopper was handcrafted by the famous artisans of the ANRI workshop in the South Tyrol region of Italy.  The “Train Conductor” is a whimsical bottle stopper with a lever in his back which, when pressed, raises his arm to show a "STOP" sign.  This vintage stopper is in very good working condition. 

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