DESCRIPTION

This is an extremely rare "champagne fountain", not a champagne tap, the difference being that this is a very large item which the bottle of champagne sits atop. I jumped on this item when I was given the opportunity to purchase it. It was so rare that to this day the only other example I have seen in located in the link below. This item has been the centerpiece of our wine cellar for over 10 years now. There are several markings on this piece; under the spike it is marked L. GILLES BREVETE S.G.D.G.G. A PARIS; it also has an interesting triangular logo above the spout; underneath, the porcelain is marked 242; and the metal underneath has the same markings as those above. The porcelain base has small bubbles showing the age of this hand made item. This item is in good condition for its age; the point is slightly bent and there would have been a cover for the tip on the chain which has been lost, but is in otherwise good condition. As always, I am more than happy to provide you with additional pictures or answer any questions you may have. In perfect condition.
