If it's a crown cap but larger than the norm, it's probably 29mm. Rob has them but I'd check with him first to make sure they will fit.
Best wishes

Yes they do, but thinking, for reusing they would be good, would a standard capper fit these?

i had to get the 29mm cup for the bench capper to fit them. i don't think standard cappers would fit to be honest as the cup would have to be bigger

I always pick up a couple when they're 2 for a £fiver in Tesco. Yep, 29mm crown caps and a bench capper are the order of the day. I keep meaning to get some wax crayons and glue sticks to have a go at waxing the top of the bottles, almost as classy as the cork and cage!

Cheers,

29 mm caps works fine. And for any champane bottle with similar neck shape.
