A large carved and painted wine siphon hewn from what is likely poplar wood.
Its simple function was to catch wine as it was syphoned through barrels, by the metal tubing attached to the underside.
Geometric folk carvings to the top and bottom of the outer rim.
Stands proudly upright supported by two nails.
Has acquired a warm, absorbing patina over the years. Crude axe marks around & inside.
Scarce thing, ideal as a fruit bowl...
c.1880 - Eastern Europe.
