Victorian corkscrew

SKU: RJ02164
£18.00Price

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.

 

This is a Victorian corkscrew with a wooden handle and spike for removing the wax seal from the cork.

 

Condition is good

 

Dimensions : 14cm x 11cm
