 Artists' Bottle Stoppers
Gallery

  A collection of unique bottle stoppers all handmade in America!

 

Many artists ask,  "what is the best size or shape of a bottle stopper?"
 I turned these stoppers to show any size will look great on the bottle.
All the bottles are the same height.

Wine gifts, unique handcrafted
								bottle stoppers, stainless steel

Visit often, as more pictures are added regularly.  
 I also put some of the best ones near the bottom and in the middle.
