Description

This very large italian corkscrew with two arms is called "Barman opener", was patented by Carlo Gemelli in March 1959 American design D-184,613. Contrary to the similar corkscrews but slightly smaller (6 barmanís version, barmaid and clown) realized by Gemilli, the stem is ringed on which comes to gear pinions profiled in the shoulders of the levers arms. On this model the barman with the beautiful moustache comprises two pairs of eyes, bizarery of Gemilli, the mouth is used as bottle opener. The general aspect is identical black drawing on aluminium. See over ďA toast to the host" of 14 different languages. There is the same corkscrew representing a waitress (Pass the cursor on the image to discover the back).
