Carriage key picnic corkscrew

Very unusual mid/late 19th Century combination picnic corkscrew with a steel sheath which is a carriage key.  The sheath has 2 slots which fit on to 2 pins on the brass shaft.  A brass ring screws over the top of the shaft to secure it in place.  A loose steel rod handle goes through the hole to form the T-Handle picnic.  There is a thread on the rod which screws into the finger hole to fix it.  The rod also has a ball at one end so it can be used to turn the carriage key when it is in place.  The key would have fitted 2 sizes of carriage keyhole.  8 cms long.

See Peters & Giulian – Pocket Corkscrews – page 61 for photo.


Condition – very good. There are dark marks on the steel carriage key and rod, and on one side of the brass ring. The worm is intact.
