DESCRIPTION

 

 

Rare Italian Wooden Corkscew.

Unusual Metal Handles

 End 19th Century

    

Beautiful and rare wooden corkscrew with unusual metal handles

Thomason system, hand turned from boxwood or fruitwood.

Origin Italy, Zona Trentino South Tyrol.

End 19th. Century.

 

The special feature are the 2 handles made of metal. I could not find in my research (see literature mentioned below) any picture with metal handles combined with wooden bells!

Usual in the numerous illustrations were always wooden handles, matching the bell.

 

 The upper wing handle is used to turn the Archimdian screw clockwise into the cork.

The lower, larger wing handle, attached to the shaft, is also turned clockwise to pull the cork out of the bottle.

 

 This very nice and with the metal wing handles very unusual corkscrew is in very good condition with pretty shine of the polished wood.

Archimedean screw with full length and sharp point.

The inner wooden spiral has a thin but negligible crack, which can sometimes happen with wood.

Weight: 200.5 grams, length closed 18 cms

It will be hard to find any other or better one!
