Henshall with Read Type Button


Very attractive Henshall type corkscrew with a unmarked Read type button – it is slightly triangular on the top side and concave on the under side, with no grooves or fluting.  The steel shaft is very decorative, with balusters, lines and faceting, and the button is integral to it.  The turned bone handle has a brush and a decorative end.  14 cms long.


See Giulian – Corkscrews of 18th C – pages 145 and 159.




Condition – Very good, bone handle has small marks all over and a small crack on one side near the end and a small missing bit on the other side at the same end and a small missing bit at the brush end.  Button shows slight pitting and a few small indents.  The worm is intact.

Shipping Cost:

Seller accepts PayPal payments
Payment Details:

Seller would appreciate if items over 500 pounds value could be paid by Bank Transfer and not Paypal.  This is due to major problems experienced previously with Paypal, plus their very high fees.  Bank details will be sent on request.
