We finally found a way to display the large arm corkscrew a year after acquiring it. We decided to mount it in a shadow box. So we built the back and sides out of oak, stained them, wrapped the back in gold satin, mounted the arm and all of the pieces that go with it as well as a fine bottle of French wine for looks, then added the frame and glass. Now we have a new piece of art that always gets commented on. This display was finished around November of 2007.
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.
