Description: Here is another classic Carl Auböck whimsical design in both the corkscrew and the bottle opener.  These are very well made and solid brass retaining a good amount of the original finish.  They are marked with the standard “Made in Austria” used by Auböck on the lower portion of the horn during their earlier production.  We have seen these signed just like this, some with just “Auböck” and some unsigned.  The newer versions that are currently being produced by Carl Auböck IV are signed with both and are a highly polished brass finish.  These are true vintage models of his grandfather. This is not an assembled set. Both pieces were purchased together as a set by the family that we acquired from.
