Thank you for viewing our Store,

We have for sale an Antique Two Piece Tocar Champagne Tape, Soda Tap
This is a beautiful example of this style champagne tap with ebony wood ribbed handle the handle screws out of the valve housing and is attached to a sharp spike (trocar).

The trocar pin extends beyond the tube with which it forms a continuous spike. The device is inserted into the cork until the end of the shaft/stem is visible. Now the wood handle is screwed out of the shaft and the spike/wire is withdrawn from the trocar. Then the tap is closed with the side valve until the champagne is needed.

Condition is very good, measures, 6 1/2" long
Era 1890-1910

Champagne Tapes & Soda Taps where designed to pierce the cork of a bottle and not allow the carbonation to escape. Once the tap is screwed through the cork you open the valve to pour your beverage then close the valve to prevent the carbonation from escaping.
