My regular readers may be wondering why I haven't posted lately. I've been doing some traveling recently. Some expected like my trip to the CCCC meeting in Portland, Maine, as well as some unexpected travel. I ended up going on an impromptu week long vacation to Seattle with less than 24 hours notice; not a bad problem to have. I will post about my time at the CCCC meeting as well as the new additions to the collections shortly, but first, here are the corkscrews that I acquired before the Maine trip.
This was a nice little Ebay find which polished up nicely. In fact, it was so distressed that it was a perfect example for my Restoring Corkscrews page. This corkscrew is what I believe to be a carved stag handle in the shape of a Japanese Samurai with a Walker shank and Sterling silver end caps.
Pre-prohibition advertising corkscrew for The Keep Bros Brewing Company.
I purchased this beautiful walrus tusk corkscrew at auction. It's unclear if the handle is original or if it was added at some point, but either way makes for a nice piece. Also has a Sterling end cap with a unicorn.
I got a good price on this nice little ebay lot consisting of 2 figural elephant corkscrews.
I'm constantly adding new corkscrews to my collection. Any new finds as well as articles which may be of interest to corkscrew collectors will be posted here.
