DESCRIPTION

7 Mannekin Pis Corkscrews– Includes Uncommon & Rare

(Reasonable offers considered)

In this lot are 7 manekin pis corkscrews. At least two of these are uncommon, and one, the center example featuring a cigarette lighter, I believe is quite rare.

The centerpiece of this lot is the carved wood figure concealing a cigarette lighter in its head. The lighter is original, has never been used and still has its original wick and striker and I believe is operative if supplied with lighter fluid and a flint. This piece displays well and stands straight and firm on it’s opener base. It is believed to be of French origin. I note for accuracy that the cigarette is missing (not unusual) and a small part of the feet has broken off which can be seen in the photo, but frankly, I never noticed this till examining it closely for listing.

Among the uncommon examples is the fisherman which is patterned from the Fisherman’s Grotto Restaurant trademark on Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco (see photo). It is in very good to excellent condition and complete with the fish and pole, which are often missing because they are rather fragile.

I consider all pieces to be in very good to excellent condition.

See photos and Bull “Corkscrew Stories” Vol. 2, page 24 for the cigarette lighter man, and pages 163 - 165 for the fisherman story.
