When I found this giant beauty more than half-a-century ago in the window of a Manhattan antiques shop it was holding a vase of daisies.

Absolutely terrific colonial American corkscrew. Business end is very magnetic hand forged iron. In general design it is crude but it has some very attractive ridges and rings and a nice central bulge which is very nicely beveled. Certainly made by a blacksmith with some skill.

A minor degree of chipping on the edges but nothing disfiguring or even unexpected in a piece with this age...
