DESCRIPTION

 

 

1880 Friedrich Kummer German Patent

Offered is this German patent by Friedrich Kummer, Dec. 3, 1880, No. 14531.  It is the forerunner of later variations made by Louis Kummer, Friedrich’s son.  In operation, this original version is based closely on the Chinnock 1863 USpatent.  The later variations produced by Louis Kummer replaced the snail faces with a pierced tube.  This original version is fairly rare and in checking past ICCAuctions, I believe this is the first offering of this particular example.  This piece is in excellent condition and is marked “D. R. Patent/FK on the yoke.  It does not appear that this piece was ever plated.

  See photos and Peters, “Mechanical Corkscrews”, page 134 and “German Corkscrew Patents”, page 11 for an identical piece.
