will & finck

Just before we left for Costa Rica, a corkscrew was offered, and I did indeed make a fair offer for the corkscrew. Said corkscrew was then put on eBay, then taken off, as eBay frowns on people selling ivory. The corkscrew was relisted on eBay, and taken off again, as eBay REALLY frowns on people selling ivory.

The aforementioned corkscrew offer-er must have been thinking about my offer whilst having their eBay experience (twice). After a couple of emails, we agreed on a price, and the carved ivory Will & Finck corkscrew is now on its way to Vinalhaven.

I will post better photos when the corkscrew arrives, but this is definitely going to be a welcome addition to the collection.
