Silver Wine Antiques
Drinking wine from antique wine glasses can be enhanced further by some
beautiful objects that perform a useful function at all stages including
opening the bottle to taking a first sip. Wine antiques are both utilitarian
and beautiful and will enhance any dinner party. These items will appeal to
both the antique collector and the wine lover and the oenophile.
Bottle openers and antique corkscrews are collected in their own right. The
Victorians went to great lengths to engineer and patent ever more complex
contraptions to open a bottle beyond the straight pull corkscrew.
Once the red or white wine is opened then it may be strained through a
silver wine funnel into a wine jug, antique glass wine carafe or silver claret
jug. Alternatively, those who choose not to decant their wines may present the
bottle on a silver wine carriage or silver wine coaster. Alternatively, bottles
may be placed into ice buckets or silver wine coolers. A silver punch bowl may
receive the contents of a bottle or two and the punch then transferred to cups
with a silver punch ladle with a whalebone handle. After dinner the silver brandy pan may be used to warm enough to full a noggin or two.
