As the title implies, I'm a little behind on blog posts, so get ready for a wave of content. A few months back I got a really good buy-it-now purchase on ebay. In fact, I don't think I've won a great buy-it-now auction in several years, but there it was....just listed, a perfect condition Israeli Pal-Bell corkscrew located in the UK for a mere $55. For reference these are rare pieces that normally fetch a few hundred at auction. As soon as I made the purchase, I knew that one way or another it would eventually end up in the collection of my friend Robert as I knew that he was actively searching for one. I shot him a message and we eventually came up with a fair trade and will be making the exchange at the upcoming ICCA AGM. What did I get in the trade? A beautiful carved stag horn corkscrew with a deer carving. I'll post pictures as soon as I receive it....or a few months down the line. Stay tuned.
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.
