Old and antique corkscrews always bought at top
prices. If you have one or a number of antique or

Hi, I'm Peter, a self confessed corkscrew
collecting addict.

I regularly buy interesting old corkscrews at
antique fairs, boot sales, UK auction houses, on
ebay & via other Internet sellers but I'd be very
happy to skip the middle man & buy directly from
you. You could save the hefty commission fees
that ebay & auction houses charge & I'll
guarantee you a quick, easy and trouble free
transaction at a great price. I could even collect
for cash if it suited you best. Just drop me a line,
preferably with a photograph or two of the
corkscrew(s) you have for sale & I'll get back as
quick as a flash with a great offer. I've bought a
number of complete collections over the years &
I would be happy to buy your collection of
corkscrews.

Really looking forward to hearing from you!

Here I am (centre) with some fellow
corkscrew collectors at an ABCDE
meeting during the Summer of
2010. Yes! There are a few of us
that are mad about antique
corkscrews.

ABCDE stands for Association of
British Corkscrew Devotees and
Enthusiasts.

Here are some English corkscrews that I'm always interested in buying.
This is a 19th century corkscrew by George
Twigg, an interesting piece with a crab piece
locking device. George Twigg patented a
number of similar corkscrews, all are of
interest to me. This example is marked on
both posts "G. Twigg's Patent". Other
examples are marked  “G. TWIGG’S PATENT
ENGLAND OCTOBER 10 1867” on one side
of the frame and “G. TWIGG’S PATENT U.S.
AMERICA JAN.21 1868” on the other side.

is a rack & pinion design manufactured by

top of each grip; or on the springs THE
QUEENS PATENT GRANTED TO T. LUND

This corkscrew was patented by John
Mabson in 1869. It is marked  MABSON'S
PATENT SOLE MAKERS JAMES HEELEY
