It's been a relatively slow start to my 2020 corkscrew collecting. No Ebay buys or auction finds thus far. It wasn't until I listed about a dozen corkscrews on Ebay a few weeks ago that I finally managed to acquire some new corkscrews. I received a message in a group chat with some fellow collectors asking about the group of corkscrews that I had listed. I explained that they were duplicates which led to the sharing of pictures of other duplicates in our collections. Something caught my eye and we quickly settled on a price. I even managed to purchase a piece that wasn't a duplicate. So what did I end up buying? First is a small celluloid red devil skull corkscrew. These corkscrews were sold as an accessory whose purpose was to make extra clear which bottles contained poison. The second is a Walker corkscrew with a carved boars tusk handle. The front of the handle depicts a dog's head poking out and the reverse side shows the back of the dog.
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.
