Attention all corkscrew collectors!

What's your favourite corkscrew? Have you got something
unusual & desirable not previously seen?

Graeme Nott recently emailed Corkscrews Online saying it would be
good to see what I considered my most desirable or unique pieces &
that it would be great to invite other collectors to send pictures &
information of their most desirable or unique pieces too. A top idea!
Cheers for the suggestion Graeme.

Please send in your favourite, most desirable or unique corkscrew(s)
which I'll add to this web page. Please join in! It would be great if we
could share each others pride & joy pieces

With so many corkscrews now depicted within the vast numbers of  
corkscrew publications it would be great to see how many unusual  
pieces we can publish to the WWW that have previously not
been seen.  
, a slight variation of a theme or something outrageously exciting.
This is one of the very last corkscrews that I'd sell. It's an American bone handled corkscrew from the early 1900's
which is beautifully & intricately carved into a horse head. It has a lovely colour & patina - a truly wonderful piece.
A really weird folding bow with three corkscrews & marked Holtzapffel, see my Blog entry 16th December 2008 & an
unusual Henshall type with a fancy button embossed with a floral design.
PETER BORRETT, Reading, United Kingdom A few of my favourites.
A bone straight pull with an incised grape
decoration on the handle, it is the only one I
have ever seen with this type of decoration.
A boxed Weirs
patent by
Heeley in mint
condition, I
have seen quite
a few boxed
A1's etc but this
is the only one
of these I have
come across.  I
collect British
patents in
particular and
this one is very
dear to me.
A very early Dowler Thomason it has a very
unusual plain barrel with a fluted bell shaped end;
it has wonderful patination and the grooves on the
handle have worn smooth with years of use.
GRAEME NOTT, Sussex, United Kingdom Three of my personal favourites.
