Champagne Tap

Vintage Champagne Tap / Corkscrew, designed with an Archimedean bladed helix with two holes in the tip and Prince of Wales Feathers on the petcock handles. Instead of 'popping' a Champagne cork, you would screw this tap through the cork and it would act as a valve. The threaded flared discharge nozzle secures a fine screen to filter debris from the champagne, wine or other liquid. The tap, with the valve closed, was screwed into the cork in a carbonated beverage. The bottle was turned upside down to cover the end of the tap, the valve opened, and the contents were discharged by the pressure in the bottle. When the desired amount was removed the valve was closed and the tap was left in the bottle to maintain pressure.

S.Maw & Son were known as a medical instrument manufacturers. They manufactured at least three different versions of this type of tap.

Boxed set of Teaspoons

A smart set of 12 silver plate grapefruit/teaspoons in a neo classical style, with pointed cups that are decorated in a relief and etched leaf pattern, thin stripes on the neck and an ornately decorated tail, in a material lined pretty green faux snakskin box with two front clasps. The cups are stamped with 12g and the makers mark. It is likely that these are French  as you can identify French silver plate by a number alongside a maker's mark. The number refers to the grams of silver used in the electroplating process. So, a spoon may bear the mark "12 G" or "12 Gr," indicating that 12 g of silver created the item. This set is as pretty as it is useful, a wonderful gift...

COLOUR: Green & Silver

MAKERS MARK/STAMP:  12g & N C with 3 stars and topped with an animal head all in an indented square.
