Rare Antique Joseph Taylor Silver Corkscrew C1790 Picnic Gentlemans Pocket:
This fantastic Georgian sterling silver corkscrew measures 78mm (3'') long x 41mm (1.5'') across the handle and weighs 21 grams. It is marked to the base with a makers mark which is either Joseph Wilmore or Joseph Taylor I am sure the expert will know as it is definitely Birmingham in origin and dates to around the 1790-1800 period. It is very well bright cut to both the sheaf and the handle and is complete with its original grooved helix and is in good working order. There are dents to both the case and to one end of the handle but I am sure a competent silversmith could easily remove these (photos7,8,&9). A fine example of a late 18thc bright-cut silver Birmingham made gentlemans pocket corkscrew.International buyers are always welcome to this sale. F.M.O.C.

Due to the recent large increase in UK postage rates I am happy for international buyers to arrange their own collection and domestic buyers to collect in person. Most international postage rates are listed as NOT signed for and NOT insured so if you require either please let me know and I will add it to your invoice. Sadly due to Italy terrible postage system I will always add £5.15 to the postage charge for signed for to ensure it reaches the customer.
