Early brass 2 pillar open frame corkscrew with decorative handle


Unusual early to mid 19th Century? brass 2 pillar open frame corkscrew, possibly Irish, with a decorative handle, probably made specially as a presentation piece. The fixed revolving handle has a wooden central section fixed with a small square brass plate and with silver or silver plated cylindrical ends with decorative ropework where they meet the wood.  They probably cover a brass interior. 


The brass frame has decorative circles at the bottom of the frame and a gliding bar with holes which pass up and down the 2 round pillars. The shaft has a right hand thread.  15 cms long.


See Giulian – Corkscrews of 18th C – page 159 for similar frame.  (I hope the decorative handle didn’t replace a simple Read handle!)




Condition – Very good, nice patina brass frame with some marks and some verdigris underneath the top, handle is good, silver has dark stains which could probably be cleaned off, sliding mechanism works OK, worm is intact.
