description
A fine Georgian silver wine funnel crafted by the “Queen of the Silversmiths,” Hester Bateman. This funnel would have been attached to the rim of the wine bottle via the attached hook and red wine would have passed through the perforation in the center of the funnel and into the glass. This allowed the wine to “breath” or aerate, which helps to smooth any tannic qualities and give the vintage a better flavor.

Hallmarked London, 1785
