Tinder Box with Sheathed Corkscrew

Rare old 18th Century? steel tinder box with a steel sheathed corkscrew, which unfortunately is broken and only has 1.5 turns.  The tinder box and sheath have a black finish which is pitted and shows areas of rust.  The lid of the box has a flint striker or fire steel on its underside. The sheath has a seam, showing its age.  9 cms closed.

See Giulian – Corkscrews of 18th C – page 86



Condition – Good for its age, but it has obviously been well used. The black finish is pitted and shows areas of rust. There is rust inside the box and on the fire steel, and there is a small hole at the base of the tinder box. The worm is broken as stated. However it is still a good genuine example of these rare items.
