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! Syrocokid@gmail.com
