Thank you for viewing our Store,

We have for sale a 1950s Syroco Clown with Hidden Corkscrew.
Wonderful find this full bodied Syroco Clown corkscrew. I say full bodied because these were also offered without the body, (head and corkscrew only). This is the painted version, they were also offered in a walnut stained version. Some collectors say this is one of the hardest Syroco Corkscrews to find.

Syroco the Syracuse Ornamental Company was founded in 1890 and produced a line of decorative accessories for home and office. The corkscrews are compression molded with a composition of wood powder and thermoset resin. The corkscrews and bells were manufactured by the Williamson Company of Newark, New Jersey. Syroco catalogs place the corkscrews in the time frame of 1940-1950.
