Two items for sure, both for the same purpose, just a different design. I am seeing the handle in each, appears to be welded to the frame, when did we start welding? Doing a little research on that end, the earliest welding took place in the mid 1800's, so this piece could not have been made before that time.

I have a different kind of rack(s) in mind...

You sound like a doctor in our turning club always looking for the racks

Note forge welding has been around for a while look at the old muskets made from flatstock and welded in round. Note the wear pattern around the chain attachment to wood. No wear at the top but there is wear on lower side so maybe extensions on chains will go under the wood to attach to peg on the opposite side. I think one of these the original and the second a copy.

I was reading the article Lew put up and I am changing my vote to his idea.  Champagne bottle rack.  In the article they show disgorging of the yeast from tje bottles and they sit like this.

I can see these old Champagne bottles with the divot in the bottom sitting on the peg and the loop from the chain holding it at that angle while the yeast bubbles off.

I like the Champagne bottle one too. I would talk this one out still, I would also like to encourage Lew to come up with some irrefutable evidence so at the end of the month we can submit Lew's answer with references, and Lew can walk away with a brand new Woodriver Low Angle Jack! MWTCA are the folks we need to convince, you don't have to convince me.

I think it was a specialty feeder made for feeding feed/hay to rabbits or some other small pet. Probably for wealthy people in a European country like Germany

I'm with Ron on this one. Could have had hay put in it then chained while horses hooves being shod, cattle being dehorned, or maybe sheep being sheared.

I found a lot of debate on the internet about.  It has been discussed extensively over the years and no direct conclusion has evolved.  Here is how I feel it was used.

Used with bottles like this with the bottles uncapped in a process called disgorging.

Ends up looking like this.  This is a drawing I found on the net by unknown author.

Congrats Lew!

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
