Vintage Corkscrew, Sterling Silver Corkscrew with Fig Fist


Vintage Corkscrew 925 Silver Picnic Style Corkscrew with Fig Fist.
Wonderful Italian Fig Fist Corkscrew and Cap Lifter marked 925. Marked 925 at cuff just above hand.
Made of 925 Silver bottle opener and sheath with a silver-plated steel corkscrew. Sheath unscrews and slides into opener end to form a handle for corkscrew.
The fig sign is a mildly obscene gesture used at least since the Roman Age in Italy, Southern Europe, parts of the Mediterranean region, including in Turkish culture, and has also been adopted by Slavic cultures and South Africa. The gesture uses a thumb wedged in between two fingers. Thanks Wikipedia
