18th C Etui

Very elegant cylindrical 18th Century etui in silver and black leather containing 2 knife blades, a needle/pricker, tweezers with ear scoop at the end, delicate folding scissors, and of course a corkscrew. This has an amazing tight multi-bladed Archimedean worm.  The corkscrew and the tools have a threaded top which screws into a hole at the bottom of the case, which acts as the handle.  The head of the worm has a knop with a hole through it, and the pricker fits through it to create a T handle for pulling the cork.  10 cms long.

See Peters & Giulian – Pocket Corkscrews – page 10.



Condition – very good, some scuffing of the leather at the bottom, tools all OK, very end tip of worm may be missing
