This one will definitely be making my best 6 for 2023, and its already making a couple of waves through the corkscrew collecting community. The corkscrew: a beautiful English T pull with cork grips and brush....obviously I'm kidding. Although the English corkscrew with the cork grips is a nice addition, the real reason for the high hammer price was for the single lever corkscrew on the right. I have only been able to find one other example which was sold about 10 years ago for a little over $17k and now resides in the museum in Romania. This example looks pristine and will be a 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.
