Another picture came from Mark, with an explanation that his son found it for 7.50. Pictured below is said corkscrew; a gemelli barman!
Don’s first listings of Alf Erickson’s collection sold yesterday, and there were some surprises. The biggest, in my mind, being that Alf’s arm with the corkscrew/hook/fork/woodenhand attachment didn’t go beyond 700 bucks. Oddly, you would have thought "joints," a guy from Oklahoma who dealt in prosthetics and for a while spent as much money as anyone, would have been all over it. It really would have made some interesting art for his office.
No corkscrews for me however, the napier key yesterday was the only one of the weekend. Hopefully, the corkscrew gods will smile upon me this week!
