Interestingly enough, the first antique corkscrews I ever purchased were acquired in Maine (where we now live) 15 years ago; my interest spurred by an article I was assigned to write for Wine Spectator Magazine about an antiques dealer in the Georgetown area of Washington, DC.

His shop was filled with antique corkscrews, and I was fascinated. My few hours spent with the owner had me hooked. And, a new collection was about to start.

Armed with a $5 limit per corkscrew, I started my quest. The limitation on price meant diligent hunting, and frequent early early mornings at flea markets. You would be amazed at what five bucks can get you however.

And. I still believe there are those hidden treasures out there, which keeps me looking. While my price limit has gone up (not by much), I still think the best, and most satisfying, way to build a collection is through the hunt.

And, hunt I do (constantly)!

You can read the Wines Spectator article here

That said, corkscrews have provided us with another collection of sorts. The friends that we have met over the years who also collect corkscrews are as fascinating, and occasionally as twisted, as the treasured openers they covet. They are gracious, gregarious, and genuinely wonderful people who enjoy a good corkscrew story, good food, and great wine.

If you have a corkscrew, and would like to learn more about it.  I have quite the library on the subject, and will gladly help out with ages, origins, and valuations.

Here is one of the latest additions to the corkscrew collection.  A cast iron reclining woman.  It dates the the 1880's, and was produced in Connecticut.

If you have an old, antique, or vintage corkscrew that you would like to part with, or would like information about, feel free to drop me a line!
