This beautiful piece is a Dutch silver pocket corkscrew. The handle is kidney shaped and decorated with garlands and a double side portrait of a male philosopher. The sheath is designed as a symetrical four sided panel with grooved decoration at the bottom give to give the idea of a classical colum as pedestal for the handle.Very attractive corkscrew with unusual shape of the sheath and very uncommon portrait decoration. Please see photos for overall condition.
The helix tip is sharp and in excellent condition. Feels like it was never used. There are two small holes on the lower bottom end of the handle.
