SALE! $39.00 (was: Regular price $78.00 )
50% off FINAL SALE

Crafted by Eastern European miners using colored detonation wire and empty wine bottles, these vintage objets are each one-of-a-kind relics. Legend has it that miners passed the time making these bottles while waiting for their shifts to begin, or during evacuations. Made in the mid-20th century, these are vintage pieces (reflected in the occasional clumps of sand mixed into the wire!) — no two bottles are alike and each will vary in shape and size.
