16.5 cm length; 12.1 cm height; 602 g weight

T. Schroder (2009), no. 142

The classification of this object as a bottle stand is somewhat conjectural. The bottle associated with it is probably twentieth century, as the irregularity of free-blown round-bottomed eighteenth-century wine bottles made the stands impractical and a short-lived fashion.
