Pop the Cork!


French 1920's Corkpull with Turned Hardwood Handle (LEO Design)


I collect (and sell) a lot of corkscrews.  And they generally fall into two categories: those that have always been special, and those that have become special through time—with the hard-won patina of age.  The cork pull shown above falls into the second category.

Made in France in the 1920's, a beautifully-turned hardwood handle is affixed to an elegantly-sculpted iron screw.  Handsome and effective.  But add 100 years of use and "seasoning" and you have an object that looks better (and has more character) than it ever did in its youth.

Let it add a bit of rustic glamour to your bar or bar cart.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
