Enormous French Zinc Bottle Rack with Rare Form
We often see bottle racks in France with straight arms, but it is rare indeed to find one that has the old form with hand-crafted holes for the bottlenecks. This one is enormous and would make the perfect decorative accent in your wine cellar. Alternatively, it could be converted into a huge chandelier with empty bottles placed in the holders for added oomph in a two-story hallway or dining room. In lovely condition with a beautiful steel blue-grey color, this piece would also make a wonderful focal point in your garden as a trellis for sweet peas or other climbing vines.
