6557 A Bone handle Henshall-type Corkscrew

Click on the images to see more detail

This is simply a good example of a Henshall type corkscrew with a bone handle and brush.  The steel shank is well turned and the worm is, interestingly, tapered along its entire length and with a good tip. The brush os old - probably original, while the other end of the handle has a turned 'button'.

There are minor stains to the handle and the suspension loop is absent, but otherwise this is a good example.

Date: c.1830 - 60

Dimensions: 6", 15.4 cm. long
