18thC Combination Corkscrew, Quill Knife, Tamper

Very unusual rare 18th Century combination consisting of a steel sheathed corkscrew with a silver folding bow and a steel quill knife with a very ornate silver cover. The corkscrew has a very tight Archimedean worm.  The steel sheath is octagonal with a decorative pipe tamper end.  The silver bow can fold over either the knife or the corkscrew.  It has some small v-shaped marks near the bottom on one side. The quill knife cover is quite thin and has ornamental scroll decoration on the sides. The top of the knife cover slots into a small indent at the top of the bow to keep it in place.  No apparent hallmarks.  9.4 cms long.


Condition – Very good. There are some marks on the steel sheath, the silver knife cover has a small crack at one edge where the knife enters. Unfortunately both the worm and the knife have lost their very end tips.
