Handcrafted Peruvian Queenwood Wine Bottle Stopper with Gift and Display Box
This Wine Bottle Stopper is Handcrafted with Peruvian Queenwood.
Queenwood (Swartzia sp) is from the Fabaceae family. It features lavender to purple heartwood with highly grained characteristics and cream-colored contrasting sapwood. Queenwood is easy to work. Native to Peru. Queenwood is another Peruvian wood we know very little about. Its color ranges from a yellowish tan color with an abundance of blood-red to purple veins running throughout the wood to a nearly solid lavender color with purple veining, or it can take on a warmer tone with red-orange and blood-red veining.
There are no stains or dyes, rather only a protective finish, to enhance the natural wood color.
The metal portion of the stopper is FDA kitchen-grade stainless steel, which is very resistant to corrosion. The 3 O-rings will allow a snug fit in various bottle sizes, and the small profile draws the viewer to the handcrafted work instead of the metal part of the stopper. The stopper is sold with a gift and storage box.
To clean a bottle stopper, please use a damp cloth. Do not put this or any other art in your dishwasher!
