Product Spotlight: Baccellieri Bros. Wine Press
At Furnish Green, it’s pretty often that we find ourselves in possession of pieces that really take us back. This time, an antique wine press is really making a staff member’s heart sing. An Italian-American, she remembers a very similar piece in her grandfather’s basement, accompanied by barrels and a shelf holding dozens of jugs of wine. This wine press, manufactured by Baccellieri Bros. Manufacturing Co. in Pennsylvania, was made at least one hundred years ago. It appears to be a much older model than many others made by this company that we’ve come across online. It has all of its original parts, minus the wooden blocks used to exert controlled pressure on the grapes whose juice pours through a spout and into a wine barrel. It could be restored in order to safely produce wine, but it’s also just an amazing and historic decorative piece. The press could also be easily outfitted as a planter as well. All in all, this is a piece that we believe will bring back memories for a lot of people.
