I have been spending much time on construction chores, and little time corkscrewing around as of late  And, I have been spending little time perusing the listings on eBay.  

But, in between hammering, nailing, sanding, and now white-washing the ceiling and walls in the master bedroom remodel, I did manage to find a few moments to check out some recent listings.  And, one in particular was of interest–not that others aren’t, this one just happened to be affordable and had a nice Buy it Now price.

A Swedish figural, I have never had one of these before, and when it arrived in the mail, I was surprised at the size of it–the from foot to foot it measures 4.5 inches.

Henceforth, this will affectionately be known as the buckethead corkscrew…




Not to be confused with this Buckethead…





Also, for those who might be interested, Jean Kigel, an artist from Maine, has done a fantastic watercolor of two lobsters, holding corks in their claws, and helixes attached to their heads.  Perhaps it will find its way into one of your collections.
