A relative of the early French piece in the last blog.

Posted: 12/11/2013

Here is an early French corkscrew offered for sale in the last ICCA auction. It has similar features to the piece in the last blog article. It has a similar but heavier worm, stronger, possibly the reason more examples are found. This piece never reached it's reserve and ended at around £180, another sign of prices falling, surely this piece has a value higher than that it achieved at auction?



The image below shows the handle in more detail. This piece is probably later in date, it's shaft has a little more detail with one simple turning.



I am considering whether to put this example into my collection as it compliments the earlier piece previously discussed but maybe it will come back out for sale at sometime!!
