Wow! Now, that was an epic battle.
For those of you that missed the first two days of the collector corkscrews auction, there were some great pieces to be had, and a few bidding wars that were fun to watch.
The Frary Fifth Ave, went pretty high (actually the highest auction result on a Frary corkscrew thus far on the auction) with Maurice going toe to toe with Ion, and ending up victorious.
Another bidding war erupted for the folding Mumford. This is a piece that I really want, but this went way beyond my limit.
Again, it was Maurice and Ion going at it again. Maurice, really has a love of prong pullers, and Ion, of course, is determined to have an example of every corkscrew known in his museum. This time Ion was triumphant.
I didn’t win a single lot, but I have my eyes on several lots ending this next weekend. Stay tuned!
