1890 Folding Corkscrew Woman's Stocking Legs Celluloid Germany:
This sale is for a folding corkscrew in the form of a woman's legs with blue striped stockings. I have provided a lot of photos to hopefully enable the viewer to evaluate this corkscrew. The folding/opening mechanism works well with a strong spring, so the corkscrew snaps open and shut. This corkscrew would probably benefit from a clean-up, something I have not done because the winner of this sale would probably like to use their own judgement on cleaning. As of now, it has a nice aged patina. Thecelluloid hasmicro-cracks at thetop rivet on both legs on both sides, as evident in my photos. They areevident in my over-size photos, but not very noticeable to the naked eye. The corkscrew is marked 'Germany' at the top of the worm on one side, and has a maker's mark on the other side that I can't make out, but would probably be recogized by a knowledgeable collector (let me know if you know the maker, and I'll add it to the description). The worm has a sharp point. This corkscrew is about 2 1/2 inches in length. Overall, this is anattractive old corkscrew, one that I believe the winner will be very happy with.
