Vintage Carved Wood "Moving Eyes" Mechanical Bottle Stopper


This vintage c. 1950 bottle stopper was handcrafted by the renowned artisans of the ANRI workshop in the South Tyrol region of Italy.  This stopper is a particularly amusing and odd one.  When you slide the post in the back of his head, his eyes, hat and cigar move. What fun! 

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" wide x 3.25" h plus 1.75" cork
