DESCRIPTION

Rare Wunderlich Bronze Corkscrew--1979 Limited Edition

Offered is a rare limited edition bronze corkscrew created in 1979 by the artist, Paul Wunderlich. This is number "405/1000" and dated "1979".

Who was Paul Wunderlich? For those unfamiliar with his work and fame (as I was before acquiring this piece many years ago), he was a world renowned German artist born in Berlin in 1927. He studied at Landeskunstchule in Hamburg during the late forties and early fifties and did much of his work there where he was also professor of graphic art and painting at the University of Fine Arts. He also spent much time in Saint-Pierre-de-Vassols (Provence), France—which is where he died on June 6, 2010. In the art world, he has been placed in the league with Picasso and Max Ernst for his many contributions.


A “sister” piece to this corkscrew was sold at Christie’s, London, South Kensington gallery on November 5, 2002. The price realized then was £494, or roughly $800. Interestingly, that piece was number 406, while this one being offered is number 405!


I consider this piece to be in mint condition. It is fully marked with the number, date and signature, though the signature impression seems somewhat indistinct.
