If anyone else has a true Syroco Corkscrew "go-with" item, (clocks, clothing brushes, bottle openers, wall hangings, molds, tie racks, cigar holders, towel racks), drop me a line at email@example.com
An unlikely find
One usually has to sift through hundreds if not thousands of "common" or "hardly collectible" corkscrews on ebay to actually find a few worth bidding on. Thank goodness for custom searches! Well, I recently came across a listing that caught my eye. It was for a 4 pc golf club corkscrew set. I do try to avoid even looking at these types of sets as they don’t quite do it for me. BUT the holder is what was intriguing. It was a Syroco German Shepherd Head mounted on the stand (it’s actually a pipe rack, not a bar set holder). (I saw this exact holder at a show in Portland several months ago, and couldn’t bribe the dealer with enough cash to sell his "family heirloom".) Anyways, it’s a good example of what I classify as a true Syroco "go-with", as this exact figurine was produced as a corkscrew. I was happy to pay 9x more for shipping this piece, than the actual winning bid!
