Early Georgian Silver Sheathed Corkscrew

Offered is an elegant, classic Georgian silver sheathed corkscrew with a mother-of-pearl handle set off with six silver rings, decorative shank and sheath and fluted wire helix.

I consider this piece to be in very good to excellent condition. The MOP and silver rings are complete and sound. The silver cap is original and tight and the fluted worm is original, complete and sharp. There are a couple of very light indentations on the sheath that in my judgment do not detract. The worm/handle connection is solid and firm as is the threaded connection. I note only for accuracy that the decorative silver cylinder covering the shank has become separated and can rotate. Again, that has no effect on the solid worm/handle connection. In any case, that does not detract from the display quality of this fine early Georgian piece. Though these pieces are often bear hallmarks and/or a maker’s mark, I can find no markings on this one.
