Notes
Pointed helix set inside a bell-shaped socket. The 2 wide sides of the socket have been left open, revealing the helix and screw that it's attached to. The helix is screwed perpendicularly to a handle with tapered and beveled edges. An additional 'T' handle is coming perpendicularly out of the top right corner of the socket; it is linked to the helix with a round link, allowing it to rotate when the handle is turned. When the 'T' handle is turned, the helix swivels and goes up and down. Alternately, when the top handle is moved up and down, the 'T' handle turns. Narrative: Corkscrew was made in Hungary (probably in Budapest) 150-200 years ago. It belonged to donor's grandfather lipot Sefera, and was passed on to her mother and then to her.
