I was lucky enough to win this beautiful piece on ebay recently. The handle is carved ivory with inlaid Sterling silver grape leaves and clusters as well as a Sterling collar above the shank. The majority of the ivory has been "inked" which is very unusual unless it is done as a monogram or family crest. Nonetheless, this is an absolutely flawless corkscrew and a great addition to the collection. Don't be surprised if it makes its way to the grape themed board featured in An Ongoing Project.
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.
