French Bottle Carriers



"Does this hunk of metal really work for you??"


This was the question posed to me during a flea market excursion by some passerby. I had to laugh. Sometimes MEN just don't get it. Ok, to be fair, sometimes PEOPLE just don't get it.

One night while preparing the living room for a hosted movie night at my house, I had a boyfriend ask once about an amazing rare black French armoire* that had just the right chipping in all the right places....
"Um, are you ever planning on painting this thing?"
Hmpf!
Poor thing didn't stand a chance after that.
(The man, that is, not the armoire!)



Hot off the container, an assortment of antique wine bottle carriers. Especially unusual hunk of metal offerings in TEN BOTTLE carriers--rare, rare, rare! All in great condition with no missing rungs.

$90-250 at vintageweave.com or 323.932.0451

*Armoire has since sold to a dinner party guest one late January when I was feeling a "new look" was in order....

I made my poor husband not only carry a bottle carrier but also a small bottle drier through the streets of a paris flea market. I was determined we were not leaving the city without it. Some people just don't get it...

My favorite. You can do so much with them. I've never seen one that can carry ten bottles. That I would love to own!
