Fabulous huge antique wrought iron rack. Craft french item - handmade. It was originally used for drying wine bottles after they were washed for reuse by the vintner.
The wine makers would keep various racks of different shapes and heights in the basement of the winery. This fabulous rack is the rarest that we've never seen, 90 hooks and also much easier and practical to use in your farmhouse decor, because it is only 8 inches wide! 90 hooks and only 8 inches wide at the base, it is fantastic.
This rack has 12 (26) tiers and 90. [(38)+(37)]2 extended bars/hooks that are affixed to the 2 flat frames inversed V shaped. Rack measures 25 inches tall.
(including the hooks) , 28 inches long, from 8 inches at the base to 3.5 inches at the top wide. We have left as found with its original rare red painting. Perfect piece for your coffee mugs or small drinking glasses as I show in the 6th photo. Of course, you can also display your favorite wine bottles (once empty and cleaned) on the rack, too.
