19th c French Wine Bottle dryer

Vintage French piece , acquired from a private collection in Ontario.

Called a “hérisson bouteilles” in France, which means “bottle hedgehogs” given their spikey appearance, these racks were originally used to dry beer and wine bottles upside down on the spikes.  Often they are found as tall, floor standing versions, but you can sometimes find smaller ones, which are more easily incorporated as decor items in homes.
