Yes it's impractical; yes it only holds a single bottle of wine; and yes, it's liable to scare the pants off anyone who watches Most Haunted. But despite all this the Chain Wine Bottle Holder is one of the most eye-catching vino accessories we've ever seen.
Magic forces collude with this nickel-plated iron chain to create a quite astounding illusion because your bottle appears to be floating in the twisted chain's vice-like grip. It's a bit like the famous Indian rope trick, only it's not famous. Or Indian. And, er, there's no rope involved. That said, you're welcome to stand in front of it swami-style, wiggling your fingers and mumbling strange incantations. Wearing a loincloth is completely optional.
Turn your home into an art gallery!
Boffins over at the Firebox research institute reckon some kind of optical illusion is at play, but we're convinced dark forces are at work somewhere within the gleaming links of this miraculous holder. Whatever. The point is it's the best trick we've seen since David Copperfield dated Claudia Schiffer and it looks awesome in any scenario.
In fact, once it's holding your bottle aloft, you could be mistaken for confusing this striking holder with a piece of modern art. We've told several visitors it represents the oppressed grape's struggle for emancipation. Or something like that.
Spin it round and see it from all angles!
An ideal gift for wine aficionados, lovers of unusual ornaments and refined heavy metal fans (of course they exist), the Chain Wine Bottle Holder is destined to become one of the most talked about items in your home. And seeing as it holds but a single bottle you can use it to showcase your favourite Châteauneuf-du- Flash and hide all the cheap plonk in your regular wine rack. Now that's magic!
