This is a wonderful early 1880’s miniature S. Werner & Co. Champagne case. The case holds eight miniature bottles of Extra Dry champagne from Sonoma, California. The case has all of the original packaging in it. Only one of the bottles doesn’t have the original cork in it. The underside of the lid has a lovely picture on it, as can be seen in the attached image.
Approximately 8” x 5-1/4” x 3-3/4”
Wood, paper, glass, ink, iron.
Two hinges attached via nails
“A. WERNER & CO. 54320. EXTRA DRY.VINTAGE 1880 SONOMA.”
This is from an Alcohol collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. CON-RLB-VBJJX17 LABGEX03/17
7+ (Very Fine+): Most of the case is very well preserved. The lid is warped due to time and the hinge on the front has been lost. It has all of the original packaging, however, and the bottles are in great condition.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original, and of the period stated.
