Fabulously decorative! For the wine lover! For the wine maker! This early copper item was used in the wine industry in France for aerating the wine. Tubing was attached to the shaft. Condition is excellent -- bright, clean copper, multi-pierced orb. A unique conversation piece from the winemaking region of the Rhone Valley. Note: The first photo is not accurate. It is a perfectly round orb.
