Who could deny that the drinking of wine and the collecting of antiques are among the most pleasurable of pursuits? As more and more people take an informed interest in wine there has been a corresponding increase in our enthusiasm for wine related accessories. As well as being functional many of these items are intrinsically beautiful such as drinking glasses, decanters, bottle tickets, bin labels and corkscrews – all of which have become increasingly valuable.
You well and truly made wine antiques a fascinating subject and I am sure we could all have been enthralled for much longer on corkscrews alone, but we also had glasses, decanters, bin labels and so much more in so many different materials and ages. It was a brilliant day! Thank you. Study Day Coordinator, The Arts Society – South Devon
