Put a muzzle on it! A very important piece for bottles of sparkling wine.
A muselet (French word for wire basket) is the wire cage that fits over the cork of a bottle of Champagne or sparkling wine to prevent the cork from emerging under the pressure of the carbonated contents.
A metal cap is incorporated into the mechanics of the muselet, which has become a great marketing tool by usually having the house or labels’ name and design on it.
Collecting the caps of Champagne and other sparkling wine is called Placomusophilia (from the French words 'plaque' for cap and 'muselet' for wire basket).
Start your very own collection with this listing of plaques. Keep them as a collection, or reinvent them into crafts (earrings, keychains or wall art for your wine cellar).
This listing is for a quantity of 9 caps, with sharp images of the Korbel crest printed in a brassy-gold color on a shiny black background. The caps are 'domed' in shape to fit over a cork (yet, they can easily be flattened). They are about the size of a US half-dollar.
