19th Century French Oak Carpenter Press Table with 18 Bottles Storage Rack
This antique table was crafted in the Poitou region of France, circa 1880. The rustic, oak piece stands on four square legs over a scalloped apron; it has the original plank press mechanism with iron screw and handle attached to one leg. The long table has a very thick top and features two shelves underneath also decorated with scalloped edges, for storage up to nine bottles per row; the top shelf is further embellished with “Bourgogne” (aka Burgundy) written across the front. This sturdy, rustic Provincial table is in excellent condition, with natural distress commensurate with age and use, and adorns a rich walnut patina; it would make a great addition to a kitchen, a wine cellar, or used as a wall console. Antique wrought iron plank holder tool included. The French wine region of Burgundy may be small in size, but its influence is huge in the world of vino. The complexity of Burgundy can cast fear into the heart of even a seasoned wine pro, but fear not – the region need only be as complicated as you want it to be. Yes, it is home to some of the most expensive wines in the known universe, but there are also tasty and affordable wines. Located in the east-central part of France, Burgundy has 5 primary wine growing areas (not including Beaujolais and Châtillonnais): Chablis, Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune, Côte Chalonnaise, and Mâconnais. Measures: 65.75″ W x 14″ D x 31.5″ H.
