As mentioned yesterday, I am working on a new project that surrounds the corkscrews of Thomas Curley.
I remembered an unusual version that BT had in his collection, but I couldn’t remember if it was a wooden handle version or a metal handle version. So, I sent off an email to him, and in short order, I received an email with said a picture of said variant.
A metal handle piece, signed for T. Curley, the bell attached to the corkscrew has “windows” instead being a solid piece.
Very cool indeed!
Speaking of Curleys, the one that I mentioned the other day arrived. It is indeed a bit “chippier” than the one in the collection, but it was a nice deal.
It is, however, a double.
Anyone want to make a trade?
There are a few others enroute to the island. Not Curleys mind you, but a nice little advertising piece.
What will turn up next? You just never know!
