I was sent an inquiry from an European corkscrew collector to see if I had any information on the gold bull figural corkscrews that seem to rear their pot metal heads every so often on ebay. I have no idea about the age or who manufactured these items, but they come and go for a wide variety of prices on the auction site.
If anyone has an idea of their manufacturer it would be greatly appreciated. And, it isn’t only bulls, the kitschy items also come in figures of sea lions, reindeer, and other forms.
As for me, I have only one in my collection, and that one is hidden somewhere where I never have to be haunted by the extremely large eyes that seem to follow you around the room.
While they are not my cup of tea, I promised I would ask around…
