I've finally received the lot that I recently won on Ebay with a mystery roundlet corkscrew with an unknown engraving for a mere $0.99 and the mystery of the engraving is now solved. This is an early advertising piece marked "BARTHOLOMAY ROCHESTER". Bartholomay was a pre-prohibition brewery operating in Rochester, NY. The corkscrew itself was produced in Germany based on the markings on the shank.

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.
