Also, the decorative cast iron handled corkscrew–a Walker if I am not mistaken–arrived in a box of 12 other corkscrews. The 12th, which was a bonus, was one of those little lead fish corkscrews, with the corkscrew in the mouth. I had hoped, the auctioneer would have slipped in a Russell patent : )
And, on the heels of scoring the Hootch Owl yesterday, I was sent an email inquiring if I was interested in a pair of ladies legs corkscrew. I responded in the affirmative, and was sent pictures shortly thereafter.
While the corkscrew itself has a little rust (or maybe a lot of rust), this is a pair of steel legs with advertising for "Loerzel & Bro. Saugerties, NY." While technically not a double, given that I do have another pair of steel legs with different advertising, this may be available for trade : )
Loerzel & Bro, was a brewery in the founded in 1874–the Loerzel Brothers name was used from 1888-1893 (according to Don Bull — http://www.bullworks.net/virtual/celluloid/celluloi.htm)
