What a beautiful piece of history. An original Baccellieri iron grape crusher, with what looks to be a very well seasoned and darkened (by countless varieties of grapes) hardwood barrell set, This old school pre prohibition grape crusher has been handed down two generations that I know of, Wine was first made on this Baccellieri crusher manually, with a hand crank. It has since been fitted with a fly wheel to be operated with an electric motor, It will still accept either a manual handle or motor, your choice. This old school wine tool will fit atop any number of buckets jugs or pails, It has a thick high heavy script that reads Baccellieri Bros. Philla. PA. CRUSHER, It is in exceptional condition for its years, Has been cleaned and protected with natural oils, ready for use or display, An amazing rare piece.. If you have been waiting to make your wine with old school class, or the way our grandfathers did, This is what you have been waiting for....Good Luck
