Rare Vintage Carved Wood "Amor Sport" 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.  This rare stopper is called "Amor Sport" and is the only two-peg stopper that ANRI produced. It features a man and woman holding hands and when the pegs are moved, the woman tilts her head and the man leans in closer for a kiss. She has a real feather in her hat.  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.

Dimensions:  2" wide x 4.5" h plus 1.75" cork
