This vintage cast iron bottle capper was likely used on all manner of home brews or perhaps some home-made dandelion or fruit wine, back when many rural households would make their own alcohol of choice. We’ve tried to highlight the original intent of this piece in the creation of this quirky lamp. The artifact itself is virtually untouched, apart from a good cleaning and sealing. It has been attached to a piece of barnboard and positioned over a (modern) wine bottle with it’s bottom removed. Add a 3 watt LED bulb (equivalent to 25 watt incandescent) which should last about 20 years, and you have a great lamp for the oenophile or lover of interesting objects. Note that the LED bulb generates very little energy so there should be no worries about heat build-up inside the bottle.
Size 8.5″ x 6″ x 17″ (21cm x 15cm x 43cm)
All electrical components are new. Comes with a candelabra base socket, LED bulb as shown, approximately 6 feet of clear vinyl cord and in-line on/off switch.
