Anri Kissing couple bottle stopper. There is a lever in the back that you push down and their heads move in for a kiss... So sweet and funny too! This has a lot of age to it and nice patina. The artist did a very nice job carving and painting this couple, there are a lot of details down to a button on the man's sweater and the cloche hat on the lady. And the faces, the faces are just precious!
Measures about 5-1/4" tall and 1-3/4" in diameter. The cork looks newer than the actual carving. The mechanics are in nice working order. This will be an awesome addition to any bar or bar ware collection.
Anri made hundreds of different kinds of carved wooden bottle stoppers. The company was founded by Anton Riffeser, a descendant of a long line of woodcarvers in the Tyrol region of Austria. In 1912 he started a workshop and in 1926 started the House of ANRI. The company sold bottle stoppers and small figurines made in its workshop or made by local woodcarvers. Each piece was handmade so no two were exactly alike.
