Frary-tale

Ever since the Williamsburg ICCA meeting, I have been hot on the trail of corkscrews made by James Frary. And, the collection is coming together fairly (or Frarily) well. The bar screws remain rather illusive (and rather expensive) not that the others are easy to find.

However, after a few conversations, some searching and re-searching, and a couple of trades the collection continues to grow. And, yesterday, a deal was made for one of the more difficult ones to find; the Frary Giant Self-Extracting corkscrew.

Not that it is really giant, but that is what it is called in Kenneth Cope’s book on Kitchen Collectibles.

Of course, there are others I am still after–so feel free to email pictures if you have any with which you wish to part. And, you can see the updated Frary Page here.
