Antique Wine Accessories - Miscellaneous

There is a huge variety of paraphernalia made to aid the storage, serving and consumption of wine, all made in Britain before 1900.  This website has categories for decanters, coasters, wine labels, corkscrews and more, but there is a large number of objects which cannot be conveniently put into the other categories on the site.  So they have been grouped together as Miscellanea.

In this category, you will find wine siphons, bottle holders, decanting cradles, champagne accessories (several of those), wine trays, corks and so much more.  We hope you will find something rare and interesting here!
