We have some of the smaller Picnic Corkscrews but have never seen one this large before....it is 6 1/2" on overall length and the tube diameter is 5 /8 inch. The base metal is brass with silver plating over. The loop section is marked 'FRANCE'. We date this piece as Georgian Period early 1800's. Have a close look at the pics of the iron screw and you can clearly see just how old this is.
