Champagne lovers centuries old French tradition...
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, Claude Dozorme is reissuing magnificent collections of champagne sabers.
CLAUDE DOZORME Prestige Champagne Saber Lafayette is a superb tribute to General Marquis de Lafayette, a figure of the French Revolution and of the Independence of the United States of America. Its beautiful green lamina wood handle is assembled on a very fine gilded hilt. The tassle trimmings hark back to the days when the riders of the Napoleonic cavalry wore their arms at the wrist.
It comes in an oak wood gift box.
