DESCRIPTION

5 Very Nice Scent Bottle Corkscrews

Offered are 5 nice examples of perfume or scent bottle corkscrews.  Two of the examples have mother-of-pearl handles with the others, including the scales on the center piece, probably being celluloid and not ivory.  Two have decorative shanks and all have dainty, full and sharp wire helixes, two of which are fluted.  The ferrels on two of them appear to be silver.

 

I consider each of these to be in excellent condition.  The rivets on the handle of the center piece are solid and tight as is a small, hairline crack in the handle of the piece second from the left. 

Please note: the photo does not do justice to the metal components of these pieces as the round shiny surfaces are difficult to photograph clearly.  All of the ferrels, shanks and worms a bright, shiny and free of any discoloration, damage or oxidation.  

 

See photo and Bull, “Ultimate Corkscrew Book”, page 105 for similar examples.
