This is a fantastic set of vintage wine utensils including a corkscrew, bottle opener, and cork stopper on a stand. They feature the mythical creatures called Cornish Pisky (also pixie, pixy, pixi, pizkie, piskie and pigsie as it is sometimes known in Cornwall).
Like many Celtic countries Cornwall is rich in fairy lore, and Piskies are the fairy folk who feature most widely in Cornish folk tales. Although they sometimes have a wicked sense of humour, they will help anyone who treats them with respect. Not so long ago almost every Cornish household had some kind of Pisky charm to attract the luck that the good will of the Piskies was thought to bring.
