This huge lot of 62 vintage corkscrews that I won at auction just arrived. Lots of quality pieces, however nothing particularly rare, but after examining everything I did notice one unusual corkscrew. The corkscrew in question is a wood handled T corkscrew with serrated button and dusting brush. It has a name stamped into the handle. The text is fairly hard to read, but it appears to say STACY. Could it have been customized for the owner? The name Stacy doesn't seem like a common name during the time when this corkscrew would have been produced. Sure enough a quick search turned up that the name Stacy became popular in the US beginning in the early 1950s and reached the height of popularity in the early 1970s before plateauing. If anyone has a similarly marked corkscrew in their collection then let me know.
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.
