I'm wrapping up my last finds of 2023 and will be posting my best six for 2023 shortly. One of the corkscrews that's been holding me up is pictured below. It's a beautiful ivory tusk with somewhat brutalist Sterling silver staples enlodged into the endcaps. I acquired this corkscrew mid-year on eBay, but I've waited to post about it until now because I usually like to polish and clean the corkscrews before posting and this one was pretty tarnished when I got it. The brutalist staples combined with how tarnished it was made it quite difficult to polish. It's a unique and welcome addition to the collection.
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.
