My bags are packed and I'm off to Romania. The highlight of the trip is sure to be the corkscrew museum at The Museum of Romania Records which contains the world's largest collection of corkscrews consisting of around 38,000 and I'll be adding a few more to the collection including these 2 rarities. The one on the left is a rare Dickson patent corkscrew with a ratcheting system built into the handle; a rarity on its own, but this one is the only known example with a wire helix. The one on the right is a rare single lever corkscrew parked Pelican Patent; also the only one known to exist.
Stay tuned for more updates.
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.
