Description

London 2004 English hallmarked solid silver excellent quality wine funnel and stand, beautifully crafted in the Georgian style from heavy gauge silver and having a heavy weight of silver.
Wine funnels are meant to aerate the wine and allow it to breath, making the flavours emerge properly. They are also very useful for transferring wine to the decanter, to avoid spillage.
This two piece wine funnel has a stepped and curved body, and has a cast and applied gadroon edge to both bottom and inside edges, and a cast shell clip to the side. The curving spout is angled to direct the wine to the decanter edge when decanting, which allows the correct amount of aeration. The interior is gilded to prevent staining, and is pierced to the bottom to collect any sediment or cork bits. The push fit spout removes for easy cleaning.
The matching circular stand also has a cast and applied gadroon edge, and convex centre to accept and hold the funnel, as well as to catch any drips.
All pieces are fully and clearly hallmarked. Maker is Whitehill.
It is unusual to get a matching stand with a wine funnel. The two together make an impressive and stunning presentation.
Size-Stand 4.75 inches diameter by 1 inch high; funnel 5.25 inches high by 3.25 inches diameter.
Weight-245 grams.
This is a very elegant, stylish, and beautifully made piece, as well as a very functional one for the drinks enthusiast or wine connoisseur. It would make a wonderful gift or a treat for yourself.
In very good condition.
