Treasures of inventiveness
Lever, T-shaped, twin-blade corkscrews… the cork extraction systems are numerous and surprising. What inventiveness also for the “mechanisms”! Rack, tilted ring, helical, screw handle, bell-head, compound lever mechanisms… Over time – since the 18th century, when the sale of wine in bottles was authorised – ingenious minds have filed hundreds of patents for corkscrew designs. Even those of hand-made origin, their careful manufacture demonstrates the attention paid to the design details: the choice and adjustment of the materials – ebony, horn, steel, brass… – the stem delicately worked in an oblique form up to the spindle, solid spindle, round spindle, cutting coils, spiral tip centred or uncentred…
The showcase houses:
• 3 opening devices, each with its place on the felt surface:
– Corkscrew Oeno Motion® Wood
– Chromed metal Foil Cutter
– Champagne Cork Opener
• 1 unique model of antic corkscrew (19th or 20th century) to be placed on the free surface reserved for it
• The corkscrew booklet Small brochure presenting some of the technical and historical characteristics of the corkscrews.
• Antique corkscrews: from one showcase to another, antique corkscrews – unique pieces – are never the same.
• Tools of L’Atelier du Vin: each type of showcase – Collectionneur 1, 2… – always contains the same set of new tools.
Our old-style corkscrews are in working condition. Certain models may present mechanical or surface condition imperfections. L’Atelier du Vin may not be held liable for this. Returning these objects, whatever the defects are, is not possible, therefore. Thank you for your understanding.
Over time, oxidation of the metal may become excessively present. To remedy this, traditional methods are still effective: emery cloth, steel wool, varnish, beeswax, etc.
