The two cherubs at the top are picking grapes from a vine and the two at the bottom are holding a cask. In his 1979 book Korkenzieher, Manfred Heckmann pictures this brass corkscrew and states that on December 1, 1976 it brought a record price for corkscrews at Christie's London of £1050 or over DM4000. Another was offered for sale by Sotheby's in London on May 29, 1985 and brought a record £4620. Sotheby's described it as a "19th century English style corkscrew."
