My parents and I took a little trip to Phoenix over the holidays and I'm happy to report that on this trip I did in fact find and purchase a rare corkscrew at an antique mall. Before I get ahead of myself, the 3 corkscrews on the right were online purchases which were waiting once we got back home. That being said the corkscrew on the left was found in an antique mall in Scottsdale (near Phoenix) and is a fairly rare piece. Its an advertising piece with the advertising stamped into the handle and includes a bottle opener. The advertising is for CONTINENTAL DISTRIBUTING CO ; HY-LITE WINES & LIQUORS. This is the first corkscrew with this design that we've added to the collection. The other corkscrews include a near perfect condition Syroco boxer corkscrew, a tiny faceted/gold-gilt perfume corkscrew, and an ivory tusk corkscrew with a Sterling sliver end cap engraved with the year 1900; a fitting addition for the final corkscrews added to the collection for 2023.
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.
