Unlike a lot of suppliers of "vintage" pieces, we do not cut any corners by making the distressed/antiqued pieces with reduced quality. We go through the very same steps of disassembly, glueing, planing, carving, painting and topcoating as we do for the New/Traditional look, but we add distressing and aging via dings, worm holes, scratches, and simulated (not real) cracks in the head staves. We then apply darker glazes to fill in and accentuate these imperfections and add a smokey patina as years of exposure in a cellar or bar would.
Wine barrel carvings make an impressive statement. They are equally at home in a tasting room or office, as they are over a fireplace or bar. They are made from the finest, hand-selected authentic French Oak wine barrels, thoroughly re-conditioned, beautifully carved, then stained, sealed, and lacquered to bring out the natural beauty of the wood.
