An ingeniously-designed, roundlet-style corkscrew or bottle opener executed in exotic wood and gold plated brass by Gucci, Italy, 1960s. The luxury brand's iconic G logo unscrews from the wood cylinder and slides precisely over one end to form a T handle. A scarce and collectible design that we acquired from a gentleman who received it as a corporate gift in the 1960s but never used it, so it's in fine condition. Signed as shown. Great gift for a sommelier or wine enthusiast.
