Collectible Corkscrews

"The best is when crazy Aunt Sally gives you a great corkscrew from a billion years ago," says Brad Farmerie, chef at the restaurant Public in New York City and its new wine lounge, Monday Room. Farmerie’s enviable corkscrew collection includes a teardrop-shaped "folding bow" from the 1890s and bright-red plastic ones from the 1950s.

"Some corkscrew collectors love the history, others the mechanics. Most have the maladie—the sickness."
