Three antique colorless glass wine rinsers with polished pontil. Note: an assembled set of similar rinsers. Price is for (3) rinsers.
A wine rinser or cooler was traditionally used to rinse or chill the diner's wine glass between formal dinner courses. A rinser is placed next to the each place setting at the dining table. The spout is designed to hold the stem of the glass with the wine glass inverted. Today they also make attractive bowls or vases.
