Holiday Pirates and a Mystery Solved

Yet again a nice corkscrew for sale on ebay has vanished.  A DICO, which I have only seen in pictures, was listed on ebay and had two bids for a whopping 9.50$…it had sat there for two days and now is suddenly gone, as it is "no longer for sale."  So, who ho ho ho hoisted their hollyjolly roger and nabbed this one so close to christmas?
 
On a more joyous note, I received an answer about the most recent mystery corkscrew.  Frank Ellis dropped me a line to say that he thought it looks like Page’s registered design from 1851.  I had actually thumbed through the Wallis book, and noticed many similarities.  Unfortunately, there would be a pin missing where the hole is on the side…oh well…still, a neat piece!
