Wine Funnels were developed towards the end of the 17th century as they were a necessity for decanting wines from the bottle to a decanter. They are typically made in two halves which are fitted together and it has a removable pierced silver strainer. The end of the spout is usually curved so that the wine would flow down the side of the bottle to prevent aeration.
