Now here's a great gift idea from Australia - a Kangaroo corkscrew from Riccardo. Although it is a direct pull corkscrew and takes a little effort in use, the Kangaroo's body is nicely shaped to fit the hand. The kangaroo stands 3 1/2 inches high and retails for AU$50.
Here's another exciting Riccardo creation - the "Outback Crocodile." This 6 3/4" long critter comes packaged in his own cage. The jaws open to cut the foil on a wine bottle and...hey, where's the corkscrew?...
...turn him over and you'll find the worm folds out from underneath. Not the most practical corkscrew but, remember, this is a work of art that will be treasured when received as a gift..
Rounding out Riccardo's corkscrew sculptures is a grape and grapevine design direct pull corkscrew accompanied by a bottle stopper.
