6045 A Plain Straight-Pull Corkscrew with a Barrel Handle
This is an early 19th century straight-pull corkscrew with a barrel-shaped handle with ring-turning. It has a square-section shank and the helix is reeded and is full and not distorted.
The handle is probably cocus-wood, but may be lignum vitae (it's hard to tell). It is very fit for purpose.
Dimensions: 5.1", 12.9 cm long
