Multifunction corkscrew




This enigmatic corkscrew; the design would return from there to Edmond Ani who patented this apparatus under the n° 805.942 on May 7, 1936. However two details differ on the level from the handle, the initial one takes again the apple silhouette and the bottle opener is at the base of the handle whereas the unknown has the more modern shape of handle, less sinuous what leaves me think than it would date rather from the Sixties. I will add that this same key without the worm was in the drawer of the parents kitchen during long years. It is an article which one very often found on the markets still in the Seventies and Eighties.
