Collections: Moveable Corks

My collection of moveable corks began in my 20’s thanks to Daddy!  I was intrigued by their mobility, detail, and uniqueness…

IMG_2259Daddy has given me every one of these corks!  They currently sit in a crystal ice bucket.  Handyman Husband has been tinkering with ideas of how to display them!  Any thoughts?

IMG_2254These corks are wooden (some with plastic parts), hand painted, and hand carved!  They are from Germany or Switzerland.  Each has a lever in the back that allows the piece to “move.”  I have duplicates, but they are even different in detail or color.  Only a couple of the corks do not move!

IMG_2251Some corks pick up a telephone, hold up a stop sign, couple’s kissing, smoking a cigar, or drinking!  They are so fun!  The kids love playing with them too!

Enjoy the day!

  • What a wonderful collection I collect regular wine corks what are only special in that I like the way they look. I place them in empty wine bottles and display them on a wine rack that is in a spot not desirable to store real wine (too much sun) and it is so colorful and quite a conversation starter for those who come into the house.

  • OMG! I have never seen anything like that. They are absolutely adorable, and to have a whole collection of them – how fabulous!! They must be a great conversation starter.
    Thanks, Patty at Home and Lifestyle Design
