DESCRIPTION

I'm looking for examples of Adelaide pattern corkscrews which I don't have.

I've attached a picture of 4 examples. The traditional Adelaide has a buffalo horn handle with both a brass ferrule and spike at the wider cut end. There are all sorts of variations, even wood handles with no ferrule can be considered. But it must have a spike or similar tool.

 I'm particularly interested in:

-Adelaides with a double helix (see eg World Class Corkscrews p339)

-Adelaides with decoration on the handles

-names on the shank or spike which I don't have (eg Will & Fink)

-Adelaides which suggest very old age. Pre 1860.

Hard to suggest a price given the range of pieces but  I'm happy to look at anything.

This old note gives more information on what I'm looking for:
