Carved Ivory Gnome Corkscrew
Some of my fellow collectors probably saw this beauty on ebay recently. Well, the secret's out! I was the lucky winner. This corkscrew needed a few repairs when it arrived. You could tell from the photos in the ebay listing that the larger end cap had fallen off at some point and been glued back upside down. How someone could make that mistake is beyond my comprehension, but fortunately after about 4 hours and a lot of acetone, cleaning, polishing and even silversmithing, I am very pleased with the results.
