DESCRIPTION
This is a magnificent large ivory handle corkscrew with beautiful sterling endcaps. The endcaps are marked "Sterling 14" and with the makers mark of "*F*" within a geometric figure. This mark is attributed to noted silversmith Ferd Fuchs of New York circa 1884-1891 - see http://www.925-1000.com/americansilver_F.html for more details. The piece is in excellent condition and the corkscrew is full length with a sharp worm. The handle is made of a tight grained ivory and the workmanship on the silver endcaps is outstanding with floral details in high relief. The handle measures 8.5" (21.5 cm) in length and roughly 1.75" (4.5 cm) in diameter. There is a bit of a rattle inside the handle if you shake it as if there's a small piece of metal inside of it, but this does not affect the integrity of the corkscrew. There is a dent in one endcap and there is very slight nickel plating loss near the end of the worm, otherwise in excellent condition. I've never seen one quite like this, an unusual well made piece.
