Giant MECHI Peg & Worm Corkscrew.

Posted: 08/30/2013


Pictured below is a stunning giant peg and worm corkscrew marked MECHI, the piece is 7.5 inches in length, the largest example I have come across. This piece is clearly stamped MECHI once on the worm shaft. I was offered the piece from an Austrian dealer to whom I am very greatful, it fits in my collection well as I have a good selection of early peg and worm corkscrews.






I have recently aquired two other pieces for the collection and I intend to show them in the blog section of this website early next week so keep checking these pages!!

How strange! Just this past week I picked up a seven+ inch peg & worm unmarked but identical to the one shown. It was found near Philladelphia, Pennsylvania U.S.A. . I was just starting to look for information when I saw your post. I call that timely! Thank you so very much!!!

What a fantastic piece. I have seen one other of this size unmarked and faceted. Unfortunately I was not lucky enough to buy it.
