Thank you for viewing our Store,

We have for sale a Vintage 1929 Manual Avillar Brass Parrot Bottle Opener & Corkscrew.
This is the Rare large version of the 1929 Polly Parrot by NEGBAUR designed and patented by Manual Avillar this Brass parrot is not one you will find every day most are hidden away in collections.
This rare and beautiful Parrot is highly sought after collectible and not found in this condition very often.
The parrot’s beak is the bottle opener and hidden between its wings is a fold out corkscrew and the base of the parrot is an ice breaker; the corkscrew is a steel blade web helix design unlike the smaller version which has a twisted wire helix. This corkscrew is marked Williamson, we speculate that Negbaur contracted the manufacturing of the steel corkscrew out to Williamson during the initial production of the Parrot. (Williamson was one of the largest corkscrew manufacturers in the USA at that time frame).
The silver parrot is not included in the sale, it is to show the size difference between the large and regular version.
