Corkscrews were part of the general equipment of a middle to upper class society in the 19th century. Wine drinking was only a pastime of the wealthy, the poorer households would drink beer and cider, as the ingredients for these drinks were cheap and readily available, unlike grapes which required a green house or orangerie to grow in the British weather.

 

A folding corkscrew and bottle opener contained in a cow hide wallet with the moto, 'Opening Time' with pressed stud fastener.

 

In good condition.
