1800’s wine press & very large 27 inch tall handblown dark green glass Demi John or wine bottle that is covered in wicker or like a basket with two handles. The large bottle has and applied glass lip that is stamped with V. The wine press is very heavy and appears to be old growth oak. The condition of the press is fine and there’s a staved bucket which is also fine. I’m not sure of all the actual parts are there to press the grapes. The bottle has chips at the rim which is to be expected because it was a utilitarian object and the wicker is weak on one handle. My apologies for the “not so great photos”.
