Anna G (dark red) by Alessi corkscrew
Stylish and iconic Anna G by Alessi corkscrew, this bottle opener is red plastic nylon and chrome-plated zamak designed in the shape of a woman.
A best seller since it was first produced in 1994, the Anna G. corkscrew is a tongue-in-cheek homage to a real woman. Her smiling face has become something of a cult figure over the years, giving birth (so to speak) to a rich family of objects for the table and kitchen in a wide range of materials.
