Purpleheart with Chrome Bottle Stopper
The bottle stopper is handmade from Purpleheart also known as Amaranth. The freshly cut wood is a dull grayish/purplish brown color but with exposure to air and UV light the color changes to a deeper eggplant purple. Purpleheart grows in Central and South America from Mexico to southern Brazil. The stopper is chrome plated and has a tapered graduated silicone gasket that provides an air tight and leak resistant seal. The wood has a polyurethane finish to protect it from alcohol.
A handmade bottle stopper makes a fantastic gift for wine lovers. The stoppers can also be used for bottles of olive oil, vanilla, vinegar and more.
DetailsThe bottle stopper is approximately 5" long and 2" wide (sizes vary due to the handcrafting process). The pictured bottle stopper (#465) is the stopper you will receive and is shipped in a felt pouch usually within 24 hours of order.
