Don’t Try This At Home

My friends Matt and Nadia visited the Victoria & Albert Museum and sent me this photo of a rather dangerous-looking tool on display.


The accompanying description reads:

30. Champagne Tap
Mounts of steel, France (Paris), early 19th-century
Champagne taps were invented in France during the 19th century and allowed a small quantity of champagne to be drawn from the bottle without the remainder losing its freshness.


That looks like a quick way to lose an eye. Or win the vinous equivalent of a Darwin Award.
