"The Opening and serving of champagne is imbued with a certain ritual. The most emblematic of these is still the sabering of the neck of the bottle, a ritual much loved by Napoleon. During the time of the Empire, the fashion was to celebrate a victory by slicing off the neck of the bottle with a saber. To perpetuate this centuries-old tradition, the Claude Dozorme is reissuing magnificent collections of champagne sabers. One is of very high value with its fine gilded hilt while the other has a sleeker, more contemporary design with a silvered hilt. The dragon trimmings hark back to the days when the riders of the Napoleonic cavalry wore their arms at the wrist. This is an original prestigious gift that will provide an elegant accompaniment to all grand events." - CLAUDE DOZORME.
