The other day, I picked up a small collection of corkscrews (and a cigar box opener) And, while the majority will end up in the junk box, there were a couple of interesting ones.
Nothing really rare, within the collection, but a few things of note:
The Ward patent (1918) is definitely the star…
but given it is British, this will be going up for sale/trade if any of you are interested
The two-tool fold-out corkscrew piece, definitely is interesting.
No markings, but very cool:
As an aside, it is officially antique season in Maine (not that there is an official antique season in Maine).
On Saturday, Montsweag opened up, and the lovely and I headed down yesterday to check things out.
No corkscrews at Montsweag, but the lunch with wine that followed was fabulous.
