DESCRIPTION

 

7 Interesting Italian Double Lever Corkscrews

 

This lot includes 7 rather interesting Italian double-lever corkscrews several of which are hard-to-find.  In the first group, the three double levers have ceramic animal heads and each is marked “ACC-CROM/MADE ITALY” on one lever arm.

 

In the brass group, #1 is the least common piece having advertising stamped on one arm, “Distributed by Pacific Wine Co./Chicago” (see photo).  Also, both #1 and #2 closely resemble the American 1930 Rosati patent, as well as similar French patents, but neither is marked.  Of course, #3 is plated and is marked with the same marking as the ceramic head pieces, “ACC-CROM/MADE ITALY.”

 

I consider each of these examples to be in very good to excellent condition.  The 3 ceramics are in excellent condition with no wear, chipping or damage.  The other pieces are in very good condition with normal wear consistent with age and minimal use.

 

See photos and Bull, “Ultimate Corkscrew Book”, page 86, O’Leary, “Corkscrews...”, page 144 and Peters, “Mechanical Corkscrews”, page 207.
