in between construction chores

In between doing construction chores (and zipping back and forth to Brimfield) I have picked up a couple of things on eBay. Nothing fantabulous, but interesting nonetheless.

One is an old printer’s block with a Perille fly-nut corkscrew. The other, a 1884 Willett’s cork easer. If you have Frank Ellis’ book on English Registrations, look at page 75.
