Description

Well-known corkscrew collectors and authors, Don Bull and Joe Paradi, uncork the excitement flowing from an array of champagne memorabilia. This detailed book has more than 1260 photographs depicting over 1800 items from around the world, and offers a thorough review of champagne memories and tools. This guide covers branded memories including early corks, decanter labels, beautiful fans, sheet music, smoking accessories, and more. There is also a section with a wide range of tools used for opening and preserving champagne. You will be fascinated by the knives, corkscrews, easers, nippers and grippers, and bottle re-sealers that champagne houses have used for advertising purposes. In particular, the chapters on taps will open a whole new world for collectors of corkscrews. In addition, there is a special chapter on Champagne Mercier, which tells the story of a giant champagne vat from the nineteenth century and highlights various collectibles from this company. Collectors, connoisseurs, and all those who enjoy life, open a bottle of Dom Perignon and wax nostalgic on the last three centuries of champagne culture and its accoutrements with this book.
