Description
Corkscrew (1) - .835 silver - Netherlands - Early 18th century
Good condition - used with small signs of aging & blemishes - 46 g

Silver corkscrew.

Wear on the silver ornamentation shows that it has been used extensively.

No hallmarks, except possibly the 'crowned O' for 1807 as re-assay mark for proof of 'aged' and therefore exempt from additional tax.

Bought in 1987 at an auction in Pulchri Studio, organized by the Venduehuis der Notarissen.
