Vintage 1940's-1950's Italian Brass Mechanical Corkscrew

Item Number: KTE213893
Price: $29.99

This Italian brass corkscrew is heavy brass with a Victorian inspired design and comes from the 1940's timeframe. It's mechanics and construction are not common making it a unique piece. It would make a handsome mid-range addition to your corkscrew collection, or better yet, as a unique gift to the wine lover in your life since it works amazingly well and pulls corks smoothly from the bottle.

Having an Italian heritage, there are signs it has been used to open great many bottles of wine, yet it is sturdy and is not ready to retire just yet. It still has many years of faithful service to offer.

This piece, as is evident in the pictures, has been around for a while and could use a good polishing. If a high-polished look is your desire, we are happy to polish it for you upon purchase. However, we have found that some buyers prefer the antique tarnished look of a classic piece such as this. Thus, we will keep the piece as-is unless you ask us otherwise.
