Vintage Hand Fabricated Waiter's Corkscrew Moving Charm in 14k Gold
Vintage Hand Fabricated Waiter's Corkscrew Moving Charm in 14k Gold

A wonderful mid 20th century charm, hand fabricated in 14k yellow gold to resemble a waiter’s corkscrew. This gold corkscrew is realistically made, with a moving, riveted bootleaver and worm. It is textured, all over, with a graved, linear, Florentine finish that really makes the charm sparkle when it catches the light. We love this unusual old darling and its remarkable (complex) hand-fabrication! It would be a great signature pendant for a waiter, wine steward, or for any wine lover. This hangs from an oval jump ring. Marked 14k for purity.
