This work of art exhibits a life-like rendering of an inebriated singing monk lifting his robe to knee level in order to stomp and crush grapes in a large wooden wine-press with his feet. Dimensions are 12" H. by 6" W. by 5" Deep. The detail and life-like expression of the work is majestic and has been produced in a very high quality fashion . The decanter displays vibrant colors from the monks red faced complexion to the enticing bunches of rose colored grapes throughout the wine-press. Also, the decanter possesses a high gloss lacquer finish as seen in the photos. Truly a classic and unique well made keepsake.

Collectible Containers

We will permit sales of unopened collectible containers that still contain alcohol as long as each of the following conditions are met and stated verbatim in the listing:

The value of the item is in the collectible container, not its contents. (Bottles of wine are not permitted, as their value is generally based on the wine in the bottle rather than the bottle itself.)

The container has not been opened and any incidental contents are not intended for consumption.

The item is not available at any retail outlet, and the container has a value that substantially exceeds the current retail price of the alcohol in the container.

The seller will take all appropriate steps to ensure that the buyer is of lawful age in the buyer and seller's jurisdiction (generally 21 years of age).

Buyers and sellers both ensure that the sale complies with all applicable laws and shipping regulations.
