Champagne siphons were very popular at the turn of the century (19th to 20th). It allows you to pour a glass of bubbly whilst keeping the fizz in the wine. The steel tip screws into the cork (though it is recommended you drill a small hole first to make it easier). You then turn the fish tail stopper to allow the champagne to flow through and out the dragons mouth spout, keeping the remaining sparkling wine fresh in the bottle.
It measures 36.5 cm (14 1/4 inches) long. The wooden handle measures 8.5 cm (3 inches) long by 2.5 cm (3/4 inch) wide.
This is an antique from the 1800s. It has some patina of age. This tap is in excellent and functioning condition.
