Handcrafted South American Tineo Wine Bottle Stopper
This Stopper is handcrafted with South American Tineo.
Tineo ~ also known as Indian Apple, this unique species from South America has golden sapwood when first milled that darkens to a rich American Cherry color within a month or two. The heartwood is marketed in veneer form as Tineo. Heartwood colors are strikingly beautiful with a bluish-black variegated stripe through pinkish red.
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!
