I've owned four cars in my life, the first three of which were Cadillacs. At the same time, I've owned this interesting Cadillac emblem corkscrew. It's sat in my glove box over the years in case I were to find a young woman in need of assistance, although they usually prefer something more practical like jumper cables. The corkscrew itself appears to be made from an actual headpiece. The helix is glued into the emblem and is very firmly affixed. The emblem appears to be from a 1990's era Cadillac and has a slight curve on the base of the emblem where this could have been turned had it been affixed to a Cadillac. The wooden sheath also has some qualities which make it seem homemade. I have never seen a similar example.
I recently purchased a new car which is not a Cadillac, so I will be selling this corkscrew on Ebay. You can view the listing here. Happy bidding.
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.
