Very nice example of this highly collected corkscrew. The celluloid stockings are striped in bright dark green and ivory. Nickel mounts are in the form of high-button boots. Influenced by the "Can-Can" dancers of the 19th century, Moulin Rouge-era Paris. Made in Germany circa 1895. 2 5/8" L. closed, 5 1/4" W. fully open
