New year finds
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.
