3 Open Frame, Ehrhardt type "Roll-Over" Corkscrews


This lot consists of 3 nice open frame, roll-over corkscrews. The roll-over idea was patented by Heinrich Ehrhardt in Germany in 1891.

In the photo, the corkscrew in the center has an ornate open frame and verdigris finish. I can find no markings.

The corkscrew on left is marked ""BACCHUS" on both sides of the frame, and on the handle it is marked, "Made in Belgium" (see photos of the markings).

The example on the right comes from Switzerland, and is marked, "Voss Cutlery Co./Switzerland" on the locking lug. As can be seen in the photo, it incorporates a protective insert at the bottom of the ring which cushions the ring against the bottle during the cork extraction.

I consider each of these pieces to be in excellent condition.

See the photos and Bull’s "Ultimate Corkscrew Book" pages 66-67, and page 73 for an example of the ornate verdigris piece.

Payment, Postage and Insurance

U.S. buyers: For payment, if you have good feedback, please pay by personal check and as a courtesy I will mail the item as soon as you let me know you have mailed your check. Otherwise a money order is preferred. In most cases I recommend buyers opt for full insurance, since once I mail the package I cannot be responsible for damage, loss or failure to deliver. If the buyer opts for insurance, in case of loss, damage or failure to deliver, I will provide the postage and insurance receipts, but the buyer will be responsible for filing the insurance claim with the post office. Unless otherwise requested, I use Priority Mail, but 1st class is OK for smaller items. Delivery Confirmation is required and a modest handling charge is included in the postage.

International buyers: As for payment,  I prefer payment by Western Union, though I do accept PayPal. I also accept personal checks if payable in U. S. dollars and drawn on a U.S. Bank (please, NO international money orders). An estimate of the shipping cost (which includes a modest handling charge and cost of a Certificate of Mailing) will be provided on request.


As for shipping-- PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: MAIL SENT OUTSIDE THE U. S. IS AT THE BUYER'S RISK 100%.   THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE DOES NOT OFFER INSURANCE OR TRACKING SERVICE FOR ANY REASONABLY PRICED INTERNATIONAL MAIL. THEREFORE, I CAN NOT, AND WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGE., LOSS OR FAILURE TO DELIVER. BY BIDDING, YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS! HOWEVER, I WILL PROVIDE A CERTIFICATE OF MAILING AS PROOF THAT THE ITEM WAS MAILED. If you are concerned about the possibility of loss or damage, I strongly recommend opting for Registered Mail, especially for more expensive items. Although Registered Mail is a little more expensive, and does not offer electronic tracking either, it is the safest and most secure means of shipping. In any case, please be assured that I am a good packer, and always attach the mailing address securely to the item inside the package should it become separated.  

All Buyers: At the end of the auction, please wait for my email with the invoice which will include shipping and insurance costs (if any) and payment options. Please do not pay until you have received my invoice.

Please email any questions before bidding at
