a good story…

So… I got the Indian that I mentioned the other day, and he is even better than the photos! The paint is perfect.

In conversation with the person selling, he explained the story told to him by the daughter of the previous (and original) Syroco Indian owner.

Apparently the woman’s father had brought it home new in the 50’s, and he promptly set it atop his bar. And, there it sat for the next 50 years, only being removed to be dusted. It was never used!

After her father’s passing, it still sat there until they decided to have an estate sale. Where upon the perfect Indian made it into another person’s hands, who promptly emailed me.

A truly fantastic Syroco corkscrew!

Pictures soon…!
