Antique Collector - Vintage and Wine Antiques


Collecting Wine Antiques and Corkscrews.
From the 18th century numerous gadgets were invented for the new and extremely pleasant, social event of the after dinner cigars and drinks, either wine or port. These were useful, decorative, sometimes expensive and abound in quantities enough to satisfy the growing numbers of specialist collectors.

Anything remotely wine related is sought after, including, claret jugs, decanters, funnels, coasters, labels, wine tasters, wine coolers, monteiths, punch-bowls and of course the best of all, corkscrews! After all, wine is mighty hard to get too without one!
Ever since winemakers put corks in bottles, inventors have created ever more interesting ways to get them out. Corks in bottles now dates back more than 300 years. Up until 1900, over 300 corkscrew patents, previously known as 'bottlescrews' were issued in England alone. The first corkscrew was patented in England by the Reverend Samuel Henshall in 1795. In 1802, Sir Edward Thomason patented an improved model, his brass double action corkscrew, which remained in use for over 100 years.
