Several weeks ago, a figural skull corkscrew appeared on eBay.
It started with a fairly substantial buy it now price, but over the following days the price was reduced, and reduced again.
With no interest, the listing was ended.
A week or so later, it was listed again, with a price reduction.
I was interested, but being rather frugal when it comes to corkscrews, I still refrained from pushing the “buy it now” button.
Knowing the seller, and he knowing I was interested, he sent me a note about the piece. I responded with my “yes, I want it price.” And, a deal was struck.
An interesting figural, with a worm that has some decided age to it.
I haven’t quite figured out what the material is.
A cool piece nonetheless, and a nice addition to the collection.
The piece is super smooth. Celluloid?
