We recently took a little trip to Jefferson, TX. It was a nice little town with at least 12 antique store/malls. Unfortunately we left without any corkscrews. Sadly this has become a common occurrence. We found a few corkscrews, but nothing rare and way overpriced. One mall did have 2 mounted displays of corkscrews, but again, way overpriced. I did however win some nice corkscrews on some of the usual auction sites this past month. First is a nice carved stag horn with carved deer head and antlers, an ivory pocket utensil set with unusual cross engraving to the handles, Thomason corkscrew, and a nice brass Merritt bar screw.
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.
