It’s Wednesday and I want…

A fun Camel head corkscrew!

Ever see one of these?  It’s quite nifty, but NOT a Nifty.  And definitely not made by Vaughan’s of Chicago.

This is actually a 1926 design patent by Everett Irving Rogers Jr.  The make of the camel head is quite detailed.  It’s main purpose was to be a bottle opener, as there is no mention of a corkscrew tool anywhere in the patent description or drawing.  But as we can all see, there it is.  A corkscrew!

This piece is not commonly found, but I’ve got great hopes of finding one for the collection.  Maybe a trade can be done or I could get lucky at the JFO Convention next month.  Hit me up if you’ve got one available!
