Funnel - Metal, circa 1960s-1990s Reg. No: HT 5341
- Metal funnel, used for pouring wine into wooden barrel, circa 1960s-1990s. It was used in domestic wine production by the Di Benedetto family at their home in Thornbury, from the 1960s to 1991. In the early years the wine making was very much a family affair, with everyone contributing to the annual ritual. As the family dispersed, Vito di Benedetto continued to make wine once every three years, with the assistance of Maria and often his daughter Angela, until his death in 1991.
- Rusted metal funnel with wire mesh inside for straining. Wire hook attached to rim.
