I won this fairly inexpensive stag horn corkscrew on ebay, but as you can see, it could use a little polishing. In addition, one of the 2 silver pins that keeps the end cap attached was missing, so it was easy to remove the end cap.
I lightly cleaned the stag horn with a damp towel, polished the silver end cap, reattached the end cap with a new silver pin, and finally polished everything with Renaissance wax.
Some new arrivals that came in this week. A Carved boars tusk corkscrew with silver end cap and a stag handled Henshall type with serrated button.
In other news, my wine racks have now been stained/sealed and are ready for install. Hopefully that will happen sometime this week.
I've been buying and selling modern bar mount corkscrews for several years now. Many of the ones that I buy come with stands and well, they've piled up. So I decided to take them to the metal recycling place to see how much they were worth. I ended up taking these 25 stands which weighed 143 pounds for a grand total of...........$3.53.
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.
