The 1st official email received by Corkscrews Online
Dear fellow collectors,
I have been collecting corkscrews for the last several
years resulting in several hundred "keepers." I have good
examples of a variety of corkscrews ranging from coffee
grinders, Thomason's, single/double levers, straight pulls
with brushes, buttons, etc., and I could go on and on. My
main focus, however, has turned to champagne taps,
bows, medicine/perfume (including the bottles when
possible), and knives.
So here's my question to all of you ....how do you display
your collections? I have my taps (including the ones in
boxes) in curio cabinets, my Thomason's, coffee grinders,
and other more expensive items in glass top table cases,
my knives and bows in the drawers of an old antique
thread box. I am also working on a display board for my
Cloughs, simple straight pulls, etc., but I'm still looking for
other display ideas.
Thanks for your assistance

Peter's reply: I, for my sins, have not found a method for
displaying my collection. I'm sorry to report that my
corkscrews & taps live in a number of different cardboard
boxes. Hopefully in time, I'll display them with creativity like
Art & yourself.
