While drinking in the early ages could be a rather simple pursuit it was also associated with fine etiquette in fine and stately surroundings. This of course resulted in the adoption and invention of furniture and miscellaneous objects particulary suited for the drinking occasion. For example, specially made tables, semi-circularly shaped to encourage the gentlemen to gather in a convivial manner after the hunt to share successes. From the early 19h century many could no longer afford buttlers and so help was required to pass the bottles around the long tables. The decanter wagon was introduced. This is just another sample of accessories and below we have displayed a few other items which we hope will be of interest and desire to seek more infortmation and perhaps a wish to own one a special wine object.
