There was an auction house located in New York which had several lots of corkscrews up for auction. There were some interesting lots, but I held back on many of them because the shipping cost alone to get a lot of about 10 vintage Champion bar mounted corkscrews shipped to me would be pretty cost prohibitive. I was able to win the one lot that I was interested in. There were several nice bar mounted corkscrews, a Lund Lever, two interesting corkers, as well as some bycatch. The last picture shows the bycatch. I know that one is a vintage shotgun shell reloader, but I'm not sure what the other tool is for. Possibly a cherry pitter? If you think you know the answer, leave a comment.
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.
