Handcrafted Spalted Maple Wine Bottle Stopper with Gift & Display Box
This Wine Bottle Stopper is handcrafted with Spalted Maple
Spalted Maple Characteristics: Spalting is a unique process which occurs as decaying logs are attacked by fungi. Any wood is susceptible to spalting, but maple is the most commonly known. The spalting process results in the characteristic "spalting lines," which look almost like the wood was drawn on with a pen. Spalted Maple has all the same characteristics of the species that is used; in this case both hard and soft maple. The tree is Native To Canada and USA.
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!
The finish is a hand buffed wax finish that protects against fingerprints
