One of each of the Cashs Ireland, Wine Bottle Stoppers! These bottle stoppers are ideal for stopping up an unfinished bottles of fine Wine, seals and protects, whilst also serving as a beautiful display piece. Features the Annestown pattern on the top of the stopper.

Annestown is a small seaside village situated on one of the most beautiful stretches of Irelands Copper coast. Sharp fissured basalt, sparkling sea, and salt spiced air are the inspiration for this fresh new pattern. The design is created by a series of diagonal and horizontal cuts that form the base of the pattern. Keen but pleasing to the touch, it has the quality of the rocky coastline that inspired it. Rising from this are rosette sprays interlaced with finer cuts that merge with clear crystal reminiscent of the sea, churned to surf that ascends back to the heavens creating a sparkling unity that can only be matched by sunshine reflecting off the ocean surface.

When the Vikings invaded Waterford they appreciated its strategic value as a major trading port. Both dry and wet goods were shipped by barrel. The barrel makers or "Coopers" as the trade was known continued their craft right up to the 20th century.

The design of Cooper Bottle Stopper for Cashs Ireland, invokes the memory of the craftsmen and the part they played in Waterford Ireland's history. Two horizontal bands of tight diamond cutting represent the metal hoops that bind a barrel holding it secure. Placed between these are long and short upright cuts denoting the wooden staves from which the barrel is formed.

Designed by Martin Croke in Waterford, Ireland. Handmade.
