Cat & Fishbones

A neat looking mechanical corkscrew turned up on eBay today and as is oft the case, shortly thereafter, it was revised with a Buy it Now.

I hesitated or a moment, as I had never seen this particular corkscrew before. Listed as “Cat & Fishbones Brass Art Deco Figural Corkscrew,” I threw caution to the wind, and promptly clicked the appropriate BUY IT NOW button.

Of course, after winning the listing, the phone rang. It was the person who had requested the Buy it Now, explaining that they asked for it, but had to step into the shower, as they were heading to Phoenix to drink some Burgundies.

Sorry unnamed Binner, I just couldn’t let this one get away…

Does anyone know where it comes from? Age? Origin? Maker?
