One side of the bone is marked with a motif (a sheaf of wheat?). The shaft leading to the worm is balustraded just below the handle and the worm itself is true and sharp. The metal parts of the item show signs of light rusting Condition is Used. Dispatched with Royal Mail
a picnic/pocket corkscrew with bone sheath. The handle of the corkscrew is threaded just below the circular metal top which takes the bone sheath to form the T-handle when in use. The bone sheath screws tightly onto the handle for safe carrying. The sheath carries some signs of wear as in the photos. Overall a nice interesting example of a picnic corkscrewCondition is Used.

A beautifully decorated hallmarked silver perfume corkscrew. The handle is decorated with patterned swirls and has an unusual curve to the top. The ring just below the handle carries the hallmarks for Birmingham with either a 'b' or an 'h' date letter which I have taken for 1901 or 1907 respectively. This ring also bears the makers mark which I am unable to read. The cartouche on the handle is vacant. The worm of the corkscrew is true and sharp. The shaft of the worm is marked steel and has no blemishes / rust spots etc. A really lovely example of a perfume corkscrew. Condition is Used but in very good condition. Dispatched with Royal Mail
