Thank you for viewing our Store,

We have for sale an Antique Octagon Tipped Peg & Worm Corkscrew.
Highly collectible Peg and Worm style corkscrew. These were made in the mid-19th century into the early 20th century, and you can still find some inexpensive ones made today.
This is a late 1800s Octagon tipped Peg & Worm with a fluted worm. The peg slides down the center of the helix for storage, pull the peg from the helix and slide into the hole at the opposite end of the helix to form a T-handle. The fluted worm is designed with a groove cut along the backside of the worm which allows air into the bottle releasing the vacuum in the bottle, allowing the cork to pull easier.

Circa, 1860-90s
Marked, none
Measures, 3 ½” Long
Condition, Very good for age. Please see all pictures.
